A Story about Teachers

Benefits of Music Education



"Northwestern Lehigh School District Fine Arts Philosophy"

We believe that the fine arts are essential, fundamental components of general education, as well as a means to improving it.  Music and the visual arts require active participation involving the students, and allow the students to develop problem-solving, higher order thinking skills, and a life-long learning experience. The arts allow multi-cultural relationships to be explored, enabling students to share in the spirit and heritage of the people who created the works

We believe that students gain personal satisfaction, intrinsic motivation, and enjoyment from participation in the arts and believe that the music and visual arts programs should provide a structure for continuous growth and development for all students to pursue their individual interests and abilities.

            We believe that the school has an obligation through the fine arts to help students develop their potential, and should provide an outlet for creativity, self-expression, coping with the subjective and maintaining a balanced perspective on life.
