The middle school music program builds on both vocal and instrumental development. Students learn notation, how to sing on pitch, and how to play an instrument. Each student performs with an ensemble at one point during the year. Music performances are held regularly during middle school assemblies and all-school assemblies. These performances provide a wonderful showcase for students to display their ability and progress. In years past, the middle school jazz band has performed at the Denver Metro State Jazz festival, and vocal ensembles perform at various events around school and in the community.
