Welcome to the Weatherly Area School District Music Department



Our mission is to prepare independent learners for lifelong musical participation by providing authentic experiences that focus on the process of engaged musical learning.

Several learning outcomes are established through this statement, including:

Independent learners: Students should be motivated and able to continue musical investigations beyond the music classroom.

 

Lifelong musical participation: A desire to be involved in music in individually meaningful roles.

 

Making informed musical decisions: Such as what music to buy, attending musical performances, what to perform, what to create, and developing personal preferences.


Main Ideas:

Using local musicians to enrich curriculum through live performance.

 

Working with other subject areas to provide a more holistic learning experience.

 

Working together within the department to provide a cohesive experience.
