  • Welcome to the Tutt Middle School Band and Chorus. 

    My name is Trent Henderson and I'm excited to have joined the staff here in November.  I am working to assess the ability levels of each student and group and move forward with quality music education.  Within the standards of music education are requirements for Singing, Playing instruments, reading and notating music, understanding music in relation to history and other cultural relations and evaluating performances to name a few.  We plan to touch on all of these areas.  Different classes will address some standards heavier than others.  I am looking forward to continuing to make music at Tutt Middle School.
