Our mission is to educate students, in cooperation with the family and community, to have the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to achieve their potential as socially responsible, life-long learners in a diverse and changing society.
Instrumental music begins in our elementary schools in 5th grade, when students are offered the opportunity to participate in band.
Music is an integral part of a comprehensive education. It enables all students to discover and develop their artistic potential through musical experiences in listening, performing, analyzing, moving and creating. Musical experiences enhance the student’s quality of life through heightened aesthetic awareness, healthy social relationships and fun. Music incorporates understanding from all disciplines and leads to an improved self-concept, a broader cultural awareness, and a development of life-long skills.
Dickinson Catholic Schools offers a number of courses and co-curricular opportunites in instrumental music. Our instrumental music courses at Trinity Junior High and High School include junior high band, concert band, jazz ensemble and drumline.
