Aptitude for the musical arts is common at the Mississippi School for the Blind with talent showcased in several music programs. These include Elementary Music and Elementary Chorus, Middle School Band, High School Band, Middle School Choral Performance, High School Choral Performance, Applied Piano, and General Music. Each ensemble is actively involved in sharing music with one another and the campus. Invitations to perform in the community are extended to MSB frequently. The Music Department highly promotes the idea of teaching students to be lifelong learners, meaning that the value of music can be learned and appreciated even beyond the time students remain at MSB.
