In March of 2013, we asked Massachusetts music educators:

  1. How often in your school district do the following Middle School ensembles meet during the week/cycle?
    • Band
    • Chorus
    • Orchestra
  2. How long are the periods?
  3. What is the name of your school district?

We are indebted to Steve Correia ( for the excellent visual he created (map, above) to display the responses he received. We also thank all those who took the time to reply to our inquiry.

Steve's full-size map is located here,
and his spreadsheet is here.
