About Us

Our philosophy

The Berlin High School Music & Theatre Arts Department is committed to fostering a community of creative, innovative, and passionate learners who appreciate cultural diversity in a global society through the performing arts. The performing arts offer students the opportunity to develop both creative and critical skills which enable them to relate their musical and theatre experiences to history and culture. Through a variety of course offerings such as vocal and instrumental performance ensembles, theatre performance and design, music theory, music history, music technology, and piano performance, students develop communication and problem-solving skills in a collaborative atmosphere. All learners will be provided with meaningful opportunities in the performing arts to further develop a deeper form of self-expression, empowering them to become lifelong participants, appreciators, and advocates of the performing arts.
