BMS Bands

Welcome to the BMS Bands Webpage!!

"There are so many wonderful reasons to join band. Having the skill to perform music instrument has been one of the most cherished accomplishments throughout history. Students who decide to learn to to play an instrument can use this skill and knowledge for the rest of their lives. There is nothing like the joy of performing music with friends.  It happens every day in school groups and continues for adults who still to play in community bands or for those who perform professionally. In all cases, performing music can be an exhilarating experience. Aside from the obvious benefits of playing a music instrument, there are a number of surprising academic benefits to students who study music. Students who take lessons on an instrument at a young age stimulate the brain in a unique way. Studies have shown that learning to play an instrument enhances a student's academic performance in math, language arts, foreign language and other academic areas. Even standardized test scores such as the SAT are higher among musicians. Whatever the reason, playing an instrument can bring joy and fulfillment like no other activity!!!" - beginband.com
