Congratulations to students Noah, Caleb and Dean
who were selected to perform in the Olympic Conference Honors Band!

Join us for our Spring Concert on Monday, April 11!

Calling all Homeschoolers, Remote Schoolers, Public Schoolers, Private Schoolers who play brass, woodwind, or percussion instruments (or would like to learn) and would like to be involved in a band and enjoy playing with other local students!

MidAtlantic Music Academy (a/k/a "Al Fresco Band" during the 2020-21 year when we rehearsed outside) is a successful band program that has existed since 1998 in South Jersey.
