Mr. Joseph Del Chiaro
Welcome to the Music Page for Dallas Ranch Middle School! Here is where you will find information for Orchestra's 1 and 2 and Band's 1 and 2. My name is Mr. Del Chiaro and I am entering my second year at Dallas Ranch Middle School as Director of Bands and Orchestras. Prior to teaching at DRMS, I taught Elementary classroom music at Orchard Park School and Diablo Vista Elementary. I still teach a few classes at Diablo Vista Elementary in addition to my classes at DRMS. I look forward to meeting all incoming 6th grade students and welcoming back familiar faces in 7th and 8th grades for the 2020-2021 school year.
Returning 7th/8th graders: Please complete the following form letting me know if you will need an instrument or book. I plan on handing out instruments after school all week. I will be assigning you the same instrument you used last year.
