Middle School Instrumental Program

Three years ago, to help create a more robust program throughout our district, we started supplementing music instruction at the middle school. Students in our program receive group and individualized instruction from professional musicians, and accomplished teachers each week. Students can expect to learn about marching and ensemble percussion, oboe, or bassoon.
