Arts and Music

          Band

Band is available during the school day for students in grades six through eight.  Students will learn the basics of the instrument of their choice while learning to play in a group environment.  Students have the option to participate in the Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) Solo Contest each February where they can get individual feedback on their skills and abilities as well as be awarded a medal based on their performance.  Band students are invited to join the Memorial Jr. High Mega Band that gathers students from Memorial’s seven feeders schools into one large ensemble.  Students rehearse several times a month at Memorial High School for a spring concert as well as for their two-day tour playing at the different feeder schools.  For more information, contact Mrs. Mary Buedel from our Home Page.
