New Students

Join the THS Music Program!

As one of the longest-operating public high schools in the United States, Towson High School has about 1550 students and offers a wide variety of musical opportunities. About 40% of our student body is enrolled in a music class, which is a great indicator of the 5-star tradition of excellence of our school.

Students can sign up for a performing ensemble class if they have previous experience in orchestra, band or choir. General music classes are offered to students with little or no musical experience and/or those students looking for an opportunity to learn guitar, piano, or discover music & audio technology. AP and Honors Music Theory prepares students to succeed on the College Board exam in May.

Additionally, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular groups including Marching Band, Tri-M Music Honor Society, Percussion Coalition, Musicals, Disney World trips, and a variety of other events.

So, come join our program, get involved, and lets make music together!

Incoming 9th Grade: Sign up for a Towson High School music class through your 9th grade BCPS course registration process.
