The Music Department is dedicated to music’s intrinsic value as a creative art and its potential to develop language, memory and self-discipline. The program focuses on quality music-making and instilling a lifelong appreciation for music and the arts in all of its students. Instruction spans instrumental and vocal music. Classes emphasize group performance — concert, chamber, ensemble, jazz band, etc. — while also encouraging students to develop their individual talents and styles. Musical groups perform at school and community events and support Pilgrim sports teams with pep and marching bands.
