Summer MBMS Band Programs!
This summer we will have 2 exciting band programs from which to choose!
We will have a 6 week Band Program and a 1 week Band Program.
The MBMS Band Program is an excellent opportunity for students to significantly grow as musicians while having a really fun time as they jam out with other students. We love helping our students connect with other students while learning new skills as musicians through the band dynamic.
Students of the MBMS Band Program work together to pick songs they want to learn. Our instructors, who lead the bands, work with students on overall band dynamics including timing, rhythm, improvisation and more!
Below are the details of both Summer Band programs!
Six week Summer MBMS Band Program:
- Start Date - June 23rd

Summer Jam Session!
We are excited to announce that we will be having a Jam Session on July 21st!
Jam Sessions are another fun, excellent ensemble performance opportunity for our students! Students' participation in these performances serves to instill confidence, musical growth, and motivation to improve as a musician.
We had our Spring Jam Session on April 14th and it was really such a fun and exciting evening for everyone! The students did an amazing job!
If you haven't had an opportunity to take part in one of our Jam Sessions, I would highly encourage you to sign up for our Summer Jam Session.
