The Fine Arts program in Loudoun County includes the performing arts. LCPS provides a number of wonderful programs including the string instrument program, an all-county music spring festival, and the Summer in the Arts program.
The goal of music education is to empower students to experience music as a source of personal enrichment, as a vehicle for the constructive expression of human emotions, and as a unique intellectual discipline. This goal will be attained through a structured, sequential program of study.
Students will develop an intellectual understanding of music through experiences in singing, moving, listening, and playing instruments. They will learn to read and notate music, and to create compositions that transcribe their thoughts and emotions into concrete, musical forms of human expression. Students will exercise their critical thinking skills by investigating and analyzing all facets of the music discipline, employing both traditional modes of instruction and the latest technological advancements. Through active involvement in music throughout the public school years, the students of Virginia will build a foundation for a lifetime of participation in and enjoyment of music.
