Message from the director:
Welcome to Daniell middle school's Performing Arts department! We are so excited that you're considering which music program might be the best fit for you. These classes take place during the school day like every other class and are not after-school commitments, so our students still participate in clubs, sports and all kinds of other things! You need NO prior knowledge- we teach you everything that you need to know. Concerned about the financial aspect? We are always more than willing to assist. There is a place for everyone in music! Please email questions about band to Mr. Page (email@example.com) and about orchestra to Mrs. Newton (firstname.lastname@example.org). For all things Chorus, please email Mrs. Bennett (email@example.com).
Students who participate in music have the lowest levels of current and lifelong use of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs among any group in our society.
