Mission Statement

Statement of Organization's Purpose The Mt. Eden High Instrumental Music Program exists to service the young instrumental musicians in our community. We instill in our members the belief that everyone can succeed in life through dedication, persistence, and hard work towards their goals. We motivate all members to hold themselves to highest standards and expectations, which are accessible and achievable to each student in the program. Furthermore, we teach our members to use teamwork in order to build camaraderie and produce a safe and nurturing environment for our students to learn. As such, excellence and mastery in any subject fosters self-esteem and self-confidence that transfers into life skills and ultimately produces a strong, caring, healthy, productive human being in society. Hence, our purpose is to help produce the leaders of tomorrow.
