Our Mission is to enrich the lives of young people within a musical community. We provide the finest possible training, practice and performance opportunities, enabling our students to learn, share and enjoy the power of music.
In partnership with parents, teachers, and the business community we:

  • Provide exposure to diverse orchestral styles under the guidance of musical professionals.
  • Nurture lifelong music skills, enjoyment and creativity.
  • Develop cognitive and fine motor skills.
  • Foster a sense of achievement and self-esteem through a performance model.
  • Promote self-discipline and teamwork through respect for artistic standards.
