Madras Band Program
Welcome to the Madras Band Homepage! The band program at Madras Middle school is dedicated to giving students the opportunity to grow musically, socially, and academically and strives to develop a livelong appreciation for music. Through musical performance, students learn how to perform and appreciate a variety of styles and levels of difficulty. They develop skills that will allow them to truly understand and appreciate the foundation of music as well as the aesthetics.
Band is a year long course and the three year program is designed to foster a basic understanding of music while providing the necessary skills to allow students to continue participation in band through high school. If you have questions about the program, please email band director, Christal Wagner.
Information from our new band director will be added over the summer. We hope our page will provide you with timely information and upcoming events throughout the school year. Thanks for visiting!
If you are new to Madras and are interested in enrolling in band, please call the school during summer office hours (Monday through Thursday, 7:00-5:00) and speak to our registrar, Melissa Handley. You may also email your request to Mrs. Handley at email@example.com. No other action is needed. Mrs. Wagner will help students determine the best choice in instruments and will communciate information regarding instrument rental to parents during the first week of school. New band students are not required to have instruments on the first day.
