The Beginning Band is a one-year class and is open to 6th grade and 7th grade Bayou View Middle School students who have had little or no experience playing an instrument.
At the start of the school year, these students choose instruments with the aid of the directors and other music educators during the school’s instrument selection process. Beginning Band is a full year class and performs two concerts, learning the fundamentals, and building student leadership. Private lessons are very helpful and strongly encouraged. Thirty minutes of practice per day with documentations on your “Practice Log” is encouraged.
