We have a number of courses to offer our students. We have an ensemble for students of every ability level. If you have any questions regarding which class is ideal for you, just contact Mr. Schmidt!

It is the goal of the Pasco Middle School Music Program, to create an environment, through music and the arts, that will foster, challenge, motivate, develop and demand our students to become responsible young adults. This program is dedicated to achieving excellence in our musical and educational endeavors. We believe Music combines the best of music, leadership, dedication, and maturity while still having fun.
