    Music and Performing Arts Department
     
    The New Providence School District believes that the performing arts are an essential element of a child's complete education.  All students are offered opportunities to create, respond and perform to the best of their abilities. General Music, Band, Orchestra, Chorus, and Drama are available to all students as well as auditioned ensembles for the more advanced student. Along with acquiring arts knowledge and performance technique, students in the performing arts work with others towards a common goal, develop a more resonant understanding of history and of other cultures, and experience a deep feeling of self worth. The amazing success of this department is due to the deep commitment and partnership between teachers, students, parents and administration. For details regarding specific programs and instructors, please access the staff directory on the left.
     
    OUR MUSIC DEPARTMENT AND COMMUNITY ARE VERY HONORED TO BE NAMED A "BEST COMMUNITY FOR MUSIC EDUCATION" BY THE NAMM FOUNDATION FOR A SIXTH YEAR IN A ROW.
