Beginning in sixth grade, middle school students are taught basic instrumental music concepts such as performance, instrument care, composition, working as an ensemble, practice habits, correct rehearsal and performance etiquette, and much more. Students perform in concert bands in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Students may also try out for the jazz band.
Middle School Vocal Music
Students who wish to continue learning the art of vocal music can elect to join the choir in middle school. Students will explore vocal techniques as well as music theory and note reading. The choir explore different genres of music and music history. Choir members perform at the District Choral Festival and some go on to perform in Honors Choirs at the regional and state level.
