At Roosevelt IB MS, the Music program encourages Students to play music together, build friendships, entertain audiences and have fun!

RMS Music 2021-2022:  Every 6th Grader is enrolled in a semester-long Music course in either Semester 1 or Semester 2 of the regular school year.  This music appreciation course is an introduction to music through music culture & history, composition and Digital Music Production (MIDI Keyboards, BandLab, Soundtrap).  6th Graders are also introduced to various percussion instruments. 

6th, 7th and 8th Graders may enroll in one of the 7th Period Music Electives, either Band/Jazz Band or Orchestra.  7th and 8th Graders may also enroll in Digital Music Production.  Sign-ups for Music Electives begin late Spring and continue through the first few weeks of school. When elective classes are full, Students are placed on a wait list.  Please contact your student’s School Counselor to sign-up for Music Elective(s).  If you have questions about the RMS Music, please contact:
