Our Musical Mission
The Simmons College music department is dedicated to providing outstanding musical experiences and opportunities to its students while helping them grow into responsible mature adults. To make these experiences successful, we require discipline, organization, and commitment to the program. Being a part of the band is seen as an honor and the students will be expected to help serve as role models for the school and other organizations within it. As a result of high expectations, discipline, and leadership, students have the opportunity to develop valuable life skills such as positive self-image, time management skills, confidence, poise, and loyalty as well as the musical abilities needed to be a successful musician.
To provide a comprehensive knowledge of music through the performance, creation, and promotion of music. To create an environment that promotes and encourages lifelong learning and personal/professional growth. To provide a sense of community and loyalty to an organization bigger than themselves. To provide an opportunity for students to develop as disciplined, mature, and organized adults. To allow students to express themselves in a different, creative manner through the means of music.
