A General Overview of Our Program!
Friendships! Our students and graduates consistently tell us that the most memorable part of the music experience at Markham are the meaningful friendships that are developed through 4 years.
Most welcoming Grade 9 music program in Ontario. We really believe our outreach and connection with our grade 9’s helps welcome every student into our department.
We offer a fantastic Vocal Music Program for all grades and experiences. From classical to pop music, we cover it all … and we teach you the proper way to sing. Sing in one, two or three choirs each year and share your hidden talents with everyone!
Our Instrumental Music program is one of the largest and most successful in Canada. We have 5 bands at MDHS, one of which is almost 140 strong!
Grade 9 Music Retreat. All Grade 9 music students are invited to attend a two day retreat, with a full itinerary of fun and hanging time with bandmates and senior students.
Music Excellence in all that we do. MDHS music is inclusive of all yet seeks to be the best in everything we do, which includes more than 100 performances in a year!
Something for everyone. Traditional instruments not really your thing? We offer a variety of ensembles, from guitar and keyboard to choirs that play anything from jazz to classical to pop to rock. And don’t forget the many social events we have throughout the year!
Professional musicians, composers and conductors. We bring the professionals to Markham to coach you, to play for you and to conduct you so you can improve as a musician!
Travel opportunities every year. We take any or all of our grade 9’s to Washington each year and the Seniors alternate between trips to America and Europe!
Great staff and great students. We are incredibly dedicated, hardworking and supportive staff. Our students … they are the best. A family atmosphere with award winning results.
