Starpoint Music Education Mission Statement

In conjunction with the Starpoint Central School District Mission Statement and the New York State Standards for the Arts, the Music Department of Starpoint Central Schools believe that a music education for all children is vital for its aesthetic, historical, cultural and educational value.
Music learns as a language that has no cultural boundaries. The K-12 Music Program strives to provide students with the opportunity to create, perform and respond to music through a variety of experiences and activities. Given this opportunity, the students will develop their potential as a performer, consumer and creator of music.
The study of music in the Starpoint Central Schools seeks to make special contributions to the student’s creative development. Music knowledge and performance fosters creativity, critical thinking skills, concentration, responding in various degrees (emotional, intellectual and physical), self-discipline and self-expression. Music celebrates differences and allows for individuals to explore their own unique ability.
The musical experiences our program seeks to provide, including general music, instrumental and vocal ensembles, will engage and affect the student’s whole personality, thereby enhancing one’s self-worth and creating the foundation for a life-long music learner. Music fosters a positive self-image, self-esteem and prepares the students to live and work in a culturally diverse society and have successful, positive social interactions.
Music is for all students as it is an integral part of the total education experience; as an independent discipline but also to support and enhance the goals and objectives of the additional disciplines. The Starpoint Central School District’s Music Program is designed as a comprehensive, sequential curriculum to ensure students will have the opportunity for mastery of various skills at various levels.
