And the bands play on: Mead and Coal Ridge middle schools receive donations to celebrate Music In Our Schools Month

Mead and Coal Ridge middle schools last week received a surprise visit from Mead High School and Stapp Interstate Toyota with a bevvy of donated musical instrument accessories to celebrate Music In Our Schools Month.

Later this month, they also plan to deliver a set of 30 PBuzz instruments to Mead Elementary School. The lightweight, plastic instruments are designed for younger musicians as an introduction to brass instruments and the skill of buzzing into a mouthpiece.

Music In Our Schools Month was created by the National Association for Music Education and is celebrated every March,” said Chad Lemons, director of bands at Mead High School. “It’s an opportunity to celebrate the great things happening in music programs across the country and to advocate for the advancement of music education in our schools.”
