• Welcome to Our Mission

    ACC 2011
    "Teaching music is not my main purpose.  I want to make good citizens.  If children hear fine music from the day of their births and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance.  They get a beautiful soul." Shinichi Suzuki 
    The goal of this program is to provide a way for our students to develop musicianship, discipline, responsibility, appreciation for aestheticism and expression through music.  If you ask students what they get out of learning, practicing and performing music, there will be a wide variety of answers. Some students appreciate the beauty of their art; others feel a sense of accomplishment they may not acquire in other classes, and some may find a strong connection within their ensemble peers.  It is the philosophy of the Buffalo Gap High School Music Department that, whatever the many answers may be, every student should have the right and the opportunity to experience the aesthetic, intrinsic and extrinsic values of music education. 
    It is the purpose of this webpage to serve as a gateway to the Buffalo Gap High School Music Department and offer more information about our structure, events, and efforts.  We encourage you to get involved with our mission to provide the best possible educational experience for our students here in Augusta County and at Buffalo Gap.
