Music Department

Music is a significant and important part of the school-community at ACS.  Our district provides a comprehensive music education, grades K-12, which includes compulsory general music classes, several elective music courses, AP Music courses, music therapy services, both instrumental and vocal small group/individual lessons, and approximately 25 co-curricular and extra-curricular performance ensembles.  Our students take part in over 60 performances, both on-campus and throughout the community (and beyond), each year. 

For the last eleven consecutive years, the NAMM Foundation has named Albion one of the "Best Communities for Music Education in the Nation."
