Instrumental Music Outside of Middle School

March 2012

We are considering a small private middle school for my son, and it does not offer a formal instrumental music program. He has enjoyed playing trumpet in 4th and 5th grades, and would like to continue to play in a group setting. Do you know of any bands or group classes? Middle School Music Seeker

Hi Middle School Music Seeker! I strongly recommend you to check out The Crowden School of Music. I am a parent of a 7th grader, who joined the school in 6th grade. The school is primarily a string program (e.g. violin and such), our son is a pianist, but he also plays the drums and the guitar, which they also nurture very actively. Therefore if your son is musically inclined I would say that you won't find any other program that can be as strong both in the music and the academics. I'd be glad to tell you more about it!!! Nestor
