As a Catholic diocesan high school in Nashville, TN, Father Ryan's mission is to be an experience of the living Gospel while challenging students to reach their spiritual, academic, and personal potential. Father Ryan's music programs have enjoyed much success in recent years due to the hard work and dedication of the staff, students, and parents. Students are consistently successful in solo and ensemble, mid-state, and all-state performances; and the marching band and winter drumline regularly win or place in state, regional, national, and world championships. Register with our fine arts department today, and become a part of this winning tradition!
"Students with course work/experience in music performance scored 61 points higher on the verbal portion of the SAT and 42 points higher on the math portion than students with no course work or experience in the arts for a combined total of 103 points higher."
"There is a very high correlation between positive self-perception, high cognitive competence scores, healthy self-esteem, total interest and school involvement and the study of music."
"Ninety percent of students who participate in their high school band, orchestra, and/or chorus go on to college and complete their undergraduate degree."
"It occurred to me by intuition that music was the driving force behind that intuition and my discovery was the result of my musical perception."
"Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other for education, because the rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul."
