Through the process of teaching and learning, the American College of Music endeavors to achieve the following:
• To assist students in understanding the history, philosophy, and instruction of music.
• To empower students to experience the ineffability of performance, facilitate knowledge acquisition, and recognize the meaning of aesthetics.
• To promote learner-centered pedagogy, critical thinking, and problem-solving as the framework for personal development.
• To create a musical community that is rich with cultural, social, and intellectual diversity.
