The mission of the Sunny Hills High School instrumental music department is to enrich the lives of young people by fostering positive youth development through a commitment to excellence in the performing arts. Participation in the performing arts during adolescence helps to build character, discipline, leadership, pride, and self-confidence which serve as the starting blocks to greater achievement and success in adulthood.
