Music Mission. It is the mission of the Boissevain Band Program to strive for musical excellence in a safe and fun environment and to create musically independent and socially proficient leaders. Our goal is to guide students towards accomplishments and musical achievements of which they can be proud.
Music Education matters. It is essential to every student's education. To be musically educated is to respect and enjoy the process of making music through participation in a variety of contexts: listening, performing, practicing, teaching, and creating can all be forms of participating in music.
Music in Life matters. Allowing music to fill our lives is to be open to having our lives changed. One can learn to be open to new concepts and understandings through a process of focused listening. Having music in our lives encourages skills in performance and problem-solving by creating organizational habits. It teaches discipline, independence, understanding, and patience.
Music Community matters. To build a community around and within music is to teach compassion for others and communication both musically and socially. A community of music builds a sense of belonging, freedom of expression, and trust. To be in a music community means to begin to understand oneself and others, and to use this understanding to help and empower other members of the ensemble and of the community.
Music Expression matters. Expression through music is discovering and appreciating the beauty and artistry in the notes we play. Music can be expressed in a number of ways, each promoting independence, self-reliance, creativity, and a sense of accomplishment. With each new challenge comes motivation that continues to encourage learning.
