    Music Notes
    Flemington-Raritan School District's Philosophy of Music Education

    Music engages the human spirit, and expresses the inexpressible. In addition, history demonstrates music's value in all civilization. Our school district believes it is critical to provide children with ongoing opportunities to grow musically. Our curriculum addresses aesthetic awareness and creativity, music knowledge, and technical competence in preparation for lifelong involvement in music. We work to enhancechildren's understanding of themselves and the people of the world through their art. To accomplish these goals, the Flemington-Raritan Regional School District provides students with meaningful ongoing opportunities in general music, choral music and instrumental music.
