The Dalton music program offers opportunities for self-expression and communication at different levels of musical sophistication.
Our mission is to help our students experience the feeling of pride, responsibility, and joy that comes from learning to read and perform music in a safe and inclusive environment.
As students progress, through performing groups, students may acquire ensemble skills, further develop individual abilities, and develop community values; our musicians must work together in understanding and cooperation to make music.
Middle and High School Music Teachers Jazz Glenn Makos and David Morgan led Dalton music students to perform in the Honors Jazz Band concert of the Independent School Music Association of NYC. The MS and HS Honors bands were composed of students from multiple independent NYC schools and featured four Dalton students selected from student auditions.
