Welcome to the Kensington Intermediate Music Homepage!
    It is our goal at Kensington to cultivate literate young musicians and advocates of the fine arts.  On this site, you will be able to follow along with all of the exciting activities and events that we are conducting in and out of our music classrooms throughout the year.  You will also find numerous resources to improve and supplement your child's music education!   The sitemap to the left will help you navigate to each music teacher's page, the KIS Choir page, KIS Band page, and additional resources.  
    On behalf of  Ms. Quimby, Mr. Taylor, and myself we welcome you and hope you visit these links often in order to keep you and your child connected with everything musical at Kensington. If you have any questions throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Kensington Music Faculty.
