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.
