At Neumann Goretti, we believe that music instruction enriches students through the study of music in an ensemble setting. Our course of study nurtures student self expression, confidence and personal growth while supporting success in all academic areas. Studies show that instrumental instruction is an integral part of a student’s total learning experience. These studies also show that students of music can communicate on a more advanced level, have a deeper understanding of emotional intelligence and develop a sense of citizenship in their community. At Neumann Goretti, Orchestra is a leadership building activity.
