Canandaigua Music Educators empower students to fulfill their academic and creative potential as musicians. Our district’s music program is dedicated to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for all students.

Music is a universal human experience and a unique academic subject. In addition to teaching a distinct set of content and executive skills, Music Education:

  • promotes collaboration
  • builds community
  • fosters creativity
  • develops critical thinking skills
  • supports social-emotional learning

All children have the ability to create, value, and connect with music. The adult life of every student is enriched by the skills, habits, and discipline acquired through the study of music.
