2019-20 Annual Report


The Preucil School of Music’s 2019-20 Annual Report publication has been published and can be read on the School’s website. The Annual report is published annually and recaps the School’s academic year. 


Please CLICK HERE to read the ANNUAL REPORT.



Preucil School of Music is deeply saddened and disturbed by the racial unjust towards our Black communities across the country. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are just the most recent examples of this ongoing inhumane systemic racism.


We strive through music to teach our students respect, kindness, love and empathy. We are here to listen and learn and will continue to reach out with the healing and unifying power of music to support our Black community.
