As a reminder, all music students are to have their Buffett Agenda (planner) with them and a pencil/pen ready to use in each class. This is a school-wide expectation! All instrumental students are expected to have their instruments at school on a daily basis. Lastly, the expectation is that all music students are respectful of other students and teachers as well as all music facilities, equipment and instruments.
Thank you for visiting the Buffett Music Department webpage!
We are so glad you are visiting our webpage to learn more about the Buffett Music Department! Learning to sing or play an instrument is a rewarding experience that often times becomes a meaningful hobby or even a career as students get older. Teachers in the Buffett Music Department strive to include all students who want to participate in music-- and there are so many music options to choose from! Whether a student likes to sing, likes to play a string instrument or likes to play a band instrument, there is a music course for everyone that will not only teach students to be skilled musicians but also provide the background necessary for students to become educated life-long music makers and consumers.

All performance dates are listed on this calendar- please check back often as performances may be added throughout the school year.
