West Cary Families...here is information about our Music Electives
We want to make sure you know about the band and strings (orchestra) program that West Cary Middle School offers. Students who have never played a string or band instrument before can participate in the beginning level classes while those who already play one of the band or orchestra instruments, can sign up for the intermediate or advanced level classes depending on your students' experience. These are year-long elective classes, so your student would sign up for one as their elective for the year. For more information and to view instrument demonstrations, please visit these sites: band: https://www.bepartofthemusic.org/group/index.php?id=1761 and strings: https://www.bepartofthemusic.org/group/index.php?id=1758
