Instrumental music in middle school    
Playing an instrument is part of the music curriculum of the middle school.  Other then the orchestra and the band - students play the keyboard and the hand-bells in music class throughout middle school.
  •  The DKJA Orchestra Program provides students with a comprehensive approach to string instrument performance.  Students may chose from violin, viola, cello, or bass. 
  • The curriculum includes music literacy (reading musical notation), ensemble performance, interpretation of different musical styles, and proper sound production.  This is achieved through a weekly private lesson plus a weekly group lesson.
  • Inherent in the program is the building of self-esteem, the strengthening of self-discipline and the development of social skills.  Students participate in performances throughout the school year.
