In addition to the development of requisite knowledge, kinesthetic skillsets, attitudes, and proficiencies akin to those found in all Departments of Music, the core mission of the MSM Music Department is to nurture an intellectual curiosity and expression of the teachings of the Catholic Church through the musical arts.  Equally important to this core mission is the music department’s support and enrichment – through presence and performance – of Mount St. Mary Catholic High School’s student body, clubs, and programs.
