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.

β€œMusic 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. β€œIt’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.”
