It is the goal of the Riverside Music Program to provide students with the skills necessary to become life long learners and performers of music.
The Riverside Music Department is committed to inspiring students to achieve performance excellence. This artistic experience will involve training in the areas of instrumental/vocal music, equipment technique, musical expression, history, and theory. This specialized instruction is designed to encourage each student to develop his or her individual skills to the maximum potential for the benefit of the entire ensemble, while focusing on mental and physical discipline, which is essential in the pursuit of excellence.
Although the music staff at Riverside strives for the highest standards in musicality, performance, artistry and creativity, we believe this pursuit must be balanced with the primary purpose of providing students with numerous and varied learning experiences for personal growth.
