Instrumental Music

Program Overview

Ms. Ashman and Ms. Benjamin welcome students and parents to the Loiederman Middle School Instrumental Music Department and webpage! In instrumental music students learn by doing. Each student enrolled in an instrumental music class will experience performance opportunities as a soloist and an ensemble member. 8th grade students are even offered the opportunity to take advanced instrumental music courses for high school credit!

Students and parents need to register for Edline to get the most updated performance and class information.
