Welcome to HMS Band!
Why should your child be in band?
The Middle School Band consists of two 6th grade bands, two 7th grade bands, one 8th grade band and a combined 7th/8th grade Jazz Ensemble.
Band is a full year course. Students are expected to complete the entire year in which they begin. However, due to scholastic needs in other areas, a schedule change may be prudent at the end of a trimester. This will be done through consultation with the music teacher, the parent(s), a counselor or associate principal, and the student.
If a concert is scheduled soon after the trimester concludes, students are expected to participate in that concert in order to fulfill their responsibility to the ensemble.
