Develop a program to the highest level such that the students may take the skills developed into all aspects of life.
This will be accomplished by:

3)       Providing an educational experience, both musically and socially, where students learn to develop themselves to their fullest potential.
4)      Learning how to work together in a team environment with students from other instrument families as well as other Capistrano Valley organizations.
