The Randolph Township Schools Music Department values the importance of music in all children’s lives. We strive to provide opportunities for musical comprehension which create a strong foundation for personal growth within the learning community. These fundamental skills become the framework for successful involvement within the wide variety of musical ensembles that are offered in grades four through twelve. At all levels, artistic excellence is the primary goal.
Staff and facilities play a vital role in providing a successful and comprehensive music education. The Randolph Community continues to benefit from highly skilled specialists in the areas of Kodaly, Orff, vocal/choral music, instrumental music (strings, woodwind, brass, percussion) and music technology. As a result, the students of the music department are exposed to a broad spectrum of musical concepts, skills and genres.
The Randolph Township Schools Music Department implements and in most cases exceeds the curriculum implied by the National and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Educators continue to see numerous connections between what the arts teach and the broader knowledge and skills students need to become more effective life-long learners. The arts are full partners in the education of all children.
For the Ninth time, Randolph Schools has been named to the"BEST COMMUNITIES FOR MUSIC EDUCATION"in the nation by the NAMM foundation.
