The HSA Music Department introduces students to the irresistible force that is music. The goal of the Music Department is to equip each individual with the tools to be a proficient musician, while fostering their creative spirit. Whether laying a foundation for the beginner or helping a more advanced musician refine their technique, our faculty offer a rigorous introduction to the discipline of making music while instilling in each student a love of music as an art. At HSA we offer private and group instruction in strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, guitar, percussion and voice. In addition to a long tradition of excellence in Western classical music, our faculty also offers instruction in jazz and a variety of folk and popular music. We encourage all students taking private lessons to participate in an ensemble and take a musicianship class. Ensemble and group experience offers the joy of creating music with others, encourages a cooperative work ethic, and allows students to enhance their overall technique.
