7th and 8th Grade Choir/ General Music 6 &7

Welcome to the 7th and 8th grade choir and 6th and 7th grade general music information page!
I am Jerusha Zimmerman. I  prefer to use my middle name (pronounced Jah-roo-sha). My email however uses my legal first name Sarah. Contact me at
This is my 5th year of teaching at Dakota Meadows. I teach the 7th and 8th grade choirs and  General Music 6 and 7. My philosophy of choral music lies in the belief that singing isn't a gift, but a skill to be developed, challenged, maintained, and enjoyed for a lifetime. General Music classes are geared toward appreciation and experiencing different performance mediums. 


These are the DMMS 7th and 8th grade choir concert dates for 2017-2018: Holiday concert~ Thursday Nov. 30, 2017 at 7pm ~ Music In Our Schools~ Thursday, March 8, 2018 at 7pm (7th and 8th grade DMMS choirs and West H.S. choirs) Spring Pops Concert~ Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 7pm (7th and 8th DMMS choirs) All concerts are at the West High School Auditorium.

General Music begins in the 1st and 2nd quarters for 6th grade and 3rd or 4th quarters for 7th grade depending on the trail. This course is an exploratory and designed to give students basic knowledge of music theory, creativity, and performance. Students in my classes play instruments, improvise, and create to demonstrate skill and knowledge of music.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at or my office phone 507-387-5077. The best way to contact me is through my email.
