Welcome to the wonderful world of Opa Jr. High Music!  Your music director, jingle tour guide, profesor de teorias musicales, and drum addict is
 Mr. Jeffrey Ballard; always helpful, slightly graying, often humming , bespectacled, and perennial show-off.

                                                                                                           May the chords be with you.

 In these classes, the students are not taught how to play a piece of music, but are taught how to learn music.  Not only will the students learn how to play woodwind instruments, or sing in a choir, or play the guitar, they will learn many aspects through basic music theory and history.  In addition, each student's experience in music will help to develop self-esteem, problem solving skills, social skills, cooperation, and respect toward others.
