Our goal for W+H music students is to develop a life-long love of music, encouraging musical enjoyment and participation long after the students leave the school. They broaden their appreciation for the power and importance of music through reading music notation, listening to and talking about music critically, and participating in authentic performing experiences through a wide range of musical styles and contexts.
In the Fall of 2017, the Wardlaw+Hartridge Performing Arts Department began an exciting partnership with Rutgers Community Arts, a division of the Mason Gross School of the Arts. We offer private music lessons on concert band instruments and voice to our students, right here on our campus. This partnership grew out of the desire to offer our students top-drawer music instruction from highly trained professional musicians on a one-to-one basis. These lessons serve to deepen and expand upon the instruction students receive during their regular Performing Arts Department instruction.
The Faculty of the Rutgers Community Arts hold advanced degrees in their instrumental or vocal disciplines and are active professionally as performers and teaching artists.
