Music Programs

Mr. James Roper, DeMatha Music Department, Director


The goal of the summer music program is to strengthen each student as an individual performer as well as an ensemble member. The students will learn individual techniques and performance skills. These two aspects of musicianship will not only make the individual a better placer, but will make him/her more valuable to his or her band next year. These co-educational programs are for students in grades 7-12.

Email jsroper@dematha.org for brochure and registration information. Please put SUMMER MUSIC PROGRAM in the subject line.
