INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PROGRAM
Mount Erin College offers a comprehensive instrumental and classroom music program which develops and enhances all students’ musical abilities through education of musical fundamentals and regular performance opportunities.
“Music education can help spark a child’s imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless. Music education should not be a privilege for a lucky few, it should be a part of every child’s world of possibility.” -Hillary Clinton
