Contact the Alton Middle School music director below to sign up your child for band, choir or orchestra for the 2022-2023 school year.
Band, chorus, and orchestra at Alton Middle School are scheduled classes that meet every day at the same time. Music students do not miss academic instruction time. Your child will have additional opportunities to participate in our extracurricular music activities like the Honors Choir, Honors Band, Jazz Band, Schumann Chamber, Jazzio’s, and music festivals and contests.
Your child may sign up for up to two (2) music classes at Alton M.S.
Band and orchestra students are to provide their own instrument. Contact the Alton M.S. band and orchestra teachers below for school rental instruments.
Students who have not participated in the Alton School District elementary band and orchestra program and wish to participate in instrumental music at Alton Middle School must have their parents contact the AMS band or orchestra director. *Please note: the band directors limit percussion to those students who have been in the program since 5th grade or those students who have passed an audition with the AMS band directors.
