The Music Department within the Academy of the Performing Arts Junior (APA Jr.) at Dwyer Middle School provides comprehensive offerings in instrumental and vocal development. Our music classes allow students to realize their fullest potential while interacting with peers who share their passion for the Arts. Involvement in music not only increases self-esteem, but often raises the level of academic achievement and instills a lifelong appreciation for music in our students.
