The Youth Middle School Band is a year-long class that students attend during Connections. Band is focused on skill development, and like sports, it takes a lot of practice to develop these skills. The more you put into Band, the more you get out of it. Most students stay in Band all three years of middle school, and then on into high school! In addition to being a fun and fulfilling class, Band can be a very important part of a child’s development— intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
