RMS Music 2022-2023 

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, percussion instruments and Digital Music Production (MIDI Keyboards, BandLab, Soundtrap, Ableton).

6th, 7th and 8th Graders may enroll in Band, Jazz Band (Advanced), Beginning or Advanced Orchestra.  Sign-ups begin late Spring and continue through the first few weeks of school. When music classes are full, Students are placed on a wait list.
