 (Maricopa) On January 18th & 19th, Ms. Tanya Hobt (Maricopa Wells Middle School), Mr. Roger Wagner (Desert Wind Middle School), and Ms. Garcia (student teacher at Desert Wind Middle School) visited all of the 5th grade classrooms to discuss music electives at the middle school level. Students had the opportunity to learn about instrument, ask questions, and try out an instrument they are interested in.


Mr. Wagner proudly announced, “Over 350 5th graders chose to try out an instrument! This tremendous number represents the growing interest in our instrumental music programs in MUSD.” The District is projecting 200 beginning students enrolling in instrument music classes between Desert Wind and Maricopa Wells, effectively doubling the size of our existing programs.


Students and families interested in Band or Orchestra should plan to attend Instrument Fitting Day on Saturday, March 3, open from9:00 AM - 3:00 PM at the Maricopa High School 700 Building.



Any questions can be directed to the instrumental music teacher at your student’s future middle school:
