Private lessons are a VITAL ELEMENT in a student’s musical life. The opportunity to take lessons with a professional musician is one of the most important factors to individual student success. These lessons are tailored to fit a student’s individual needs, and provide specific, one-on-one instruction for your child. Private lessons challenge the advanced students and accelerate students who need extra attention.

Incoming 5th Graders! We hope you have come to this page in search of more information about the Maus Band Family!
Beginner Band is the first step to learning a musical woodwind, brass or percussion instrument. We are one of the largest organizations at Maus Middle School with 290 members! Band is a great way for students to develop leadership and social skills as well as belong to a group with team centered values.
You do not need to have any prior musical experience to participate in the band! Band music is versatile and we play many different types of music including concert, jazz, pop, classical, pep, and more!
Fine Arts education is incredibly supportive to fostering a well-rounded child. Benefits of being in band are: learning teamwork, responsibility, organization, multi-tasking, dedication, confidence and PRIDE.
Band students consistently have higher SAT scores than the national and state averages, and usually excel in the core subjects and in college. Band students also tend to receive more scholarships for college!
Considering the amount of time it takes to build all the skills necessary to master an instrument, most students begin band in the 6th grade as their elective. Students are able to enroll in more electives in the 7th and 8th grade.
