Music Department Information

Dear Parents and AMS Music Students,

Welcome to my website. I’m really looking forward to the 15-16 year. I hope this website proves to be helpful. I always welcome feedback. If something needs to be posted that isn’t feel free to let me know. Thanks for taking time on this matter, and again please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns that are not being addressed to your satisfaction.

Sincerely,

Ron Madden, AMS Music 425-431-4041 maddenr@edmonds.wednet.edu

PS: Why do we have lab fees?

The lab fees help pay expenses not adequately covered by the district that are related to the success and quality of every student’s instrumental music experience:

*Music and other instructional materials

*Professional musicians to work with students

*Repair and replacement of large and expensive instruments (tubas, bass clarinets, French horns, percussion equipment, string basses, cellos, bows, etc)

*Stereo equipment maintenance

*Field trips

Budget cuts have made the lab fee more important than ever.
