Make Some Noise
The instrumental music department believes that music is an intrinsic and fundamental part of the human experience. It is an integral part of everyday life and a necessary component in the development of both humanness and spirituality. It is a language that begins where all other languages end.
The mission of instrumental educators is twofold. First and foremost, their objective is to develop the performance, rehearsal, and personal practice habits of each student in order to give them a skill they can enjoy for their entire lives. This is done through the exploration of music literature from all genres and cultures, the development of technical facility, the gradual improvement of reading skills, and membership in quality performing ensembles of all sizes. It is the department’s hope that students leave Marist prepared for music-related careers in education, performance, music business and industry, and music law.
