Music in Westonka
Music education in Westonka Public Schools is a core discipline, essential to the growth and development of all students. The Westonka music staff believe that a music education for all children is vital for its aesthetic, historical, cultural and educational value. The K-12 music program strives to provide students the opportunity to create, perform and respond to music through a variety of experiences and activities.
The goal of the Westonka music department is to make special contributions to each child’s creative development, and team building and cooperative learning skills. In addition, music knowledge and performance helps increase critical thinking skills, concentration, self-discipline and self-expression.
