Welcome to our Music Department Page 

Students here at TEMS have the opportunity to take a general music class as part of their creative arts rotation.  They can also sing in our chorus or play an instrument (or two, or three) in our school band, wind ensemble, or jazz band.  The groups put on concerts regularly throughout the year as well as perform frequently for local celebrations.
