Students have a marvelous opportunity to learn and play a musical instrument at Phoenix P-12 Community College. They are given the opportunity to learn the skills that enable them to perform confidently. We welcome students from all cultural backgrounds, musical backgrounds and interests to take part and share their musical journey together.

Creating music with others is an exciting experience, and performing in small or large groups is an integral part of the Instrumental Music Program. Participation in the program may assist in the development of social skills, co-operation, teamwork, concentration, memory, fosters creativity, develops discipline, leadership skills, time management and persistence. These important characteristics uniquely contribute to other areas of education and student life.

The instrumental music staff are an experienced and dedicated team who share their enthusiasm, passion and expertise with students.
