It is the goal of the Raymond B. Stewart 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 and mature young adults. This program is dedicated to achieving excellence in our musical and educational endeavors. We believe band and chorus combines the best of music, art, leadership, dedication, and maturity while still having fun.
