The Music Department nurtures the desire within each student to express his or her emotional and ntellectual powers, through the development of musical techniques and listening skills.

HSA’s Music Department offers a broad curriculum, including instruments of the orchestra, piano, guitar, percussion, voice, and ensemble classes. The philosophy of the Music Department is to prepare each individual to be a proficient musician, while fostering his or her creative spirit. With the support of our masterful teachers, all students will be able to focus on bringing his or her artistry to light.

Individual lessons are at the core of our music curriculum, enabling the student to be exposed to the technique and musicianship of the HSA faculty committed to teaching, while maintaining active performing careers.Students can sign up for individual lessons at any time during the year in 16-week or 32-week sessions. In addition to the weekly lesson, departmental recitals are presented throughout the year, providing an environment for players of all levels to perform for friends, family, and the community.
