The Advanced Band
The Advanced Band is the premier performing ensemble at Bayou View Middle School and is open to students at an advanced level who have demonstrated the ability to perform more complex music and have had at least one year of previous instruction on a wind and percussion instrument. 7th and 8th Grade Advanced Band members are expected to attend before/after school sectionals and full band rehearsals throughout the year.
The Advanced Band members will perform at the Sounds of the South Concert and Sight-reading contest, the Christmas Concert, the Spring Concert, football games, and various other performances throughout the year.
Advanced Band members are highly encouraged to take private lessons on their instrument. Thirty minutes of practice per day with documentations on your “Practice Log” is encouraged.
