The Montgomery County Public Schools Music Program is aligned with National and State Music Education Standards.
The study of music assists in the acquisition of 21st Century Skills. The cooperative learning setting of music ensembles allows students to develop both individually and as members of a larger community. The creativity inherent in the creation or interpretation of a musical selection fosters creative thinking and problem solving strategies that permeate other facets of life. We encourage and celebrate the personal expression within every child.
