  • Band

    • In this class, students will learn how to play an instrument, to read music, and to perform in an ensemble with their peers who are also learning to play the same, or different instruments.
    • Creativity, self expression, cooperation with peers, and independent practice are all very important characteristics that are common among band students.

  • Music Production

    • We are lucky to have the opportunity to begin a music production class through the producer SkiBeatz, who has chosen Dillard as a pilot school for a curriculm that allows students to create, mix, and arrange music using actual software that is used in the professional music industry.
    • Creativity, Collaboration, and Curiosity are all traits that are going to be useful in learning how to use and master this software to become a music producer.
