The Bayou View Middle School Band has a long tradition of excellence in providing an unparalleled musical experience for more than 200 students in grades 6 through 8. Bayou View Band Students participate in one of six concert ensembles grouped by ability level: The 6th Grade Beginner Band, The 7th Grade Beginner Band, The 7th Grade Intermediate Band, The 7th Grade Advanced Band, The 8th Grade Intermediate Band, and The 8th Grade Advanced Band (Varsity Band).
The success of the band program comes from the dedicated effort of our students, student leaders, and parents; along with the support of the administration and school district. Students in the BVMS Band begin their music education journey at the elementary schools. After middle school, students in the band continue their instrumental music education in the nationally recognized Gulfport High School Band.
