About

Welcome to the Lewis Middle School Instrumental Music Program!

​Learning to play a musical instrument in a precision ensemble is an exciting and challenging event and one which is not always an easy thing to do; time and patience are important factors for the parent, students, and teacher.

​Our goals for the year are:

  1. ​To provide a background in the appreciation of music and an understanding of music fundamentals as it relates to each student by learning the skill of a musical instrument.
  2. To promote responsibility and good citizenship habits through the musical medium.
  3. To broaden the student’s sense of self-discipline and group responsibility as the student works toward a common goal of technical proficiency, artistic appreciation, and performance excellence.
  4. To prepare the student for the successful completion of the public school instrumental music program at the high school level.
  5. To have FUN through a quality musical experience
