Welcome to the Central Middle School Music Department! Our courses include a variety of ensembles including Band, Percussion Ensemble, Orchestra, Choir, Select Ensemble, Introduction to Band, Piano or Orchestra, Music Theory and Musical Theatre.  The music department is under the direction of Mr. Jeff Leager (Band, Piano, Percussion) and Mrs. Heather Akers (Theatre, Orchestra, Choir). 

The Central Middle School Music Department has been a perennial performer and award winning department  in many community and larger regional festivals and performance venues. Most recently, in 2019 we were selected as the recipients of the Espirit de Corps Award for the second year (2018 as well) in a row for Most Outstanding Music Department in performance at our annual Music in the Parks festival series. 

Our bands, choirs, and orchestra have always performed at top tier levels and competed with class, excellence, and Senator Pride! We welcome you to our department and hope you will take advantage of all we have to offer! We encourage you to take charge with your student(s)’ education by joining and participating with our CMS Music Boosters organization as well!

For any question please feel free to email Mr. Leager or Mrs. Akers. Thank you and welcome to the music family here in Capital!
