Students will collaborate to create a culminating musical composition, collaboration or performance. We will exercise our critical thinking skills by learning to express math, science, literacy and social concepts through music. The music we create can engage, entertain, educate, unite and empower our communities. The unique musical contribution of each student will be heard. During this musical experience, a spirit collaboration and friendship will be built between students, teachers, schools as well as the greater communities.
