Music Department

NAMM Foundation award graphic

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

Instrument Donations

The music department is looking for donations of instruments. Does anyone have an old flute or clarinet taking up room in a closet? If so, our awesome band directors can put them to good use. They are also looking for trumpets, trombones and alto saxophones.

If you are interested in donating please reach out to Mrs. Almeter at or Mr. Martillotta at
