Helena Music“Music is an essential part of everything we do. Like puppetry, music has an abstract quality which speaks to a worldwide audience in a wonderful way that nourishes the soul.” – Jim Henson

Our 30-Year Plan:

  • In thirty years, every student will be able to sing Happy Birthday to a coworker or a lullaby to their child.
  • In thirty years, every student will be able to clap along at a sporting event or concert.
  • In thirty years, every student will be able to feel moved by the emotion in a beautiful piece of music.

In other words, every musician at Warren School will be a Tuneful, Beatful, and Artful adult!
