The Mears Middle School music staff invites you to participate in choir, orchestra, concert band, jazz band, and ukele! Classes are available at varying levels, descriptions are below.
Participating in a music class offers a fun and team-based experience, presents a healthy challenge to the individual, develops self-discipline, and aids in physical coordination.
All music classes last for the entire year, and are formed based on student selection, so give your choice careful consideration. After school starts, schedule changes are strongly discouraged.
