Meet our Students >

Welcome to Sequoyah! With this new chapter comes new opportunities and some difficult decisions. You want your child to be engaged, challenged, and prepared for middle school and beyond. Just as important, you want to know that your child is in a supportive and safe atmosphere that will allow them to not only survive, but to thrive. In the award-winning Department of Instrumental Music, we strive to provide all of that and more! On behalf of the music department, I would personally like to welcome you to the Phoenix Family! I encourage you to browse this website to discover the numerous opportunities your child will have as a member of our program.  I look forward to potentially working with you and your child in the near future!
