Music Department




Welcome to Ransom Middle School's Music Department.

Please click the links below in order to access the specific music organization:

RMS Chorus

In Chorus, we have a group for every grade and ability.  

No musical experience is needed; we will learn how to read music together. 

We participate in All County Chorus in the fall. 

Seventh and Eighth graders have the opportunity to try out for All State Chorus. 

We participate in our district's Music Performance Assessment (MPA) each spring. 

We perform at school, for elementary schools, and various other occasions as opportunities arise.


RMS Orchestra

The Ransom Middle School Orchestras offer instruction in violin, viola, cello, and string bass during classes that meet daily during the school day.

Orchestra I provides the student with basic training in the proper care of string instruments, fundamentals of musicianship, and instrumental performance.

Orchestra II/ Orchestra III continue the development of instrumental musicianship. Leadership, responsibility, cooperation, self-discipline, and concentration are stressed. Technical skills advance to III-V positions and vibrato.

Incoming 6th graders do not need any previous musical experience to join! Students do need to rent or purchase their own instrument, and the orchestra program provides basses and cellos for classroom use.

The Ransom Orchestra members have discovered that playing a string instrument is a fun, exciting, and challenging musical journey! In addition to school concerts throughout the year, any advanced orchestra members also participate in the Escambia County Youth Orchestra (ECYO), a county-wide orchestra that is sponsored by the school district.
