Welcome to Instrumental Music!!!

Hello, and Welcome to Instrumental Music!

My name is Mrs. Earles (also known as Ms. E) and I am in my tenth year as the Director of Bands and Instrumental Music here at Edison High School. We are doing some AMAZING musical things here at Edison! We are a growing, invested music program in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis. More great things coming again this year, including our iconic Homecoming Half time show, working with world-renown Grammy-winning composer Libby Larsen, Choir and Concert Band traveling to New York City, and so much more!!!

Homework & Tutoring Support Times

I coach Rock Band on Wednesdays from 3:15-5:00 after school. There are some days that I work with students after school to help them catch up on their work. Most of the time if students need to make up work, I tell them these things:

1) Come see me before school (need to know in advance)

2) Stay after school (double check with me to see if I am available)

3) During lunch (must eat lunch in cafeteria and get a pass from me beforehand)

4) Advisories- please check with me for a pass




Concerts are completed for the 2022-2023 School year. Please check out our YouTube Channel to watch our performances!


Pepband season is over! See you all Winter 2024!
