COVENTRY K-12 PHILOSOPHY OF MUSIC EDUCATION:
Music is intrinsic to the complete human being and therefore must be cultivated in all students. Through creating, performing, and responding to music, we will generate an autonomous, musical lifestyle evidenced through tuneful, beautiful, and artful expression.
These Artistic Experiences and meaningful opportunities will enrich students' lives as well as the lives of others.
All elements of music require experience above explanation to glean from them the highest artistic experiences.
The repertoire of the Coventry Music Programs must be of the highest quality to encourage these deep musical experiences.
The CHS Music Department offers courses which provide a variety of experiences for all abilities and musical backgrounds. These courses are designed for students who wish to pursue music as a hobby as well as those planning a career in music. Some of the courses are open to all students; others require a placement audition.
