Music is so much more than beautiful art …
it’s also a vehicle for learning essential life skills. By following a challenging musical curriculum, the students of the CYO Music Programs learn teamwork, organizational and leadership skills, personal responsibility, and the value of hard work. Performance, music camp, and travel experiences fine-tune new skills, helping students to mature as musicians and as people.
As a part of our organization, our musicians develop more than their musical skills; they learn what it means to work together toward a common goal, experience the thrill of accomplishment, and feel the pride of a job well done.
Music is More Confidence. Self-discipline. Pride of workmanship. Maturity.
What community wouldn’t want these values for its children? These things are not ours to give—they are things children must learn for themselves. We can provide young musicians with the opportunity to learn these values.
