In partnership with families and communities, it is the mission of the Cheshire Public Schools Music Department to instill in each student the inspiration for a lifelong participation in music.
Music is an integral part of the human condition, and it is essential to the well-rounded education of all children. The ability to create, perform, and respond to music emotionally and intellectually has an important humanizing influence. Musical knowledge and performance increase critical thinking skills, concentration, creativity, self-discipline, self-expression, and self esteem which are vital to all learning. The skills, knowledge, and habits acquired through the study of music literature enrich students' lives. Through these experiences, students build positive personal relationships with others, preparing them to live and work in a culturally diverse society.
