MMS Time to Shine
Have you heard…
Let’s celebrate all of the awesome things happening in Band at MMS!
Over 210 students are enrolled in band with 25 of those students choosing to participate in band twice a day with Jazz/Pep Band!
Our Symphonic Band performed the hardest literature during Mrs. Malott’s time as Director and earned a Superior Rating! (and one of the pieces was harder than our classification level!) They also performed two additional grade 3 selections for our Spring Concert, learning them in 6 weeks (less if you count testing).
One of our students was chosen for the All State Middle School Honor Band.
Eight of our students were chosen for the Polk All County Middle School Band. (our largest number yet!)
Eight Superior Rated Solos, 1 Superior Rated Duet, 1 Superior Rated Trio, 2 Excellent Rated Solos, and 1 Good Rated Solo at Solo and Ensemble Musical Performance Assessment
At least 22 students passed all of their middle school major scale requirements, 5 students passed all 12 major scales with 2 of them passing off many natural minor scales.
We had our Spring Concert at Branscomb Auditorium….wows! How exciting it is to perform on such a wonderful stage!
We have raised enough money to purchase at least one new tuba this summer!
We have a wonderful High School band director, Mr. Michael Keogh, who visits at least once a week! MMS is proud of our students.
