Developing Lifelong Excellence Through Music

Our Philosophy of Education

Music is a fundamental piece of the human experience.


This makes music education a necessary endeavor to ensure that the whole child is being educated. To this end, it is the philosophy of Finneytown Bands to educate, to the fullest extent, every child enrolled in band. This includes skill development, cognitive understanding, and aesthetic appreciation for many forms of music from many cultures.

The primary objective of Finneytown Bands is to develop the performance, rehearsal, and personal practice skills of each student. Students are expected to have a good work ethic, show consistent progress, and develop goal setting while achieving skills and having fun with their instruments.
