Band Philosophy

The instrumental music program in our middle school is the first phase of a seven-year program of instruction. It is our hope that participation in the band program will foster better understanding and appreciation of music and help students carry with them the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help them throughout their academic career.

 

While it is the individual student's achievement in music that is our primary goal, it is the commitment of all band members to each other that has allowed our program to achieve excellence. By signing the handbook agreement, you will be making a commitment that includes the following:

  1. You will be a member of the band for the entire school year.

  2. You will give your best effort to improve as a musician.

  3. You will maintain a progressive, positive attitude toward band and school throughout the year.
