The award-winning Abington Junior High School Music Department serves over 1000 students each year, engaging each student in personal musicianship, ensemble excellence and music fundamentals.  The Abington Music Community has been awarded the NAMM Best Communities for Education 10 years in a row!
Band, Chorus, and Orchestra are elective classes meeting during the school day for grades 7, 8, and 9.  These award-winning ensembles perform multiple times each year in the community, in music festivals and in the Winter and Spring Concerts at Abington Senior High School.  
Each student in the 8th grade is required to take General Music, which is a performance-based weekly class that engages all levels of music performers.
