LiveWell: Wellness, Health, and Fitness Programs

The mission of the LiveWell Program is to enhance each student's well-being. This is accomplished by helping students develop and maintain positive self-management skills through education and safe and enjoyable experiences. These skills are especially geared toward long and rich careers in music.
