Our elementary band program teaches character, perseverance, and team work through music.
Why choose band?
There are many great reasons to choose band! Band is an excellent creative outlet for young and old alike. It allows us to feel and express emotions and to become more emotionally aware. Working toward a common goal in a group setting strengthens teamwork and cooperation skills. Learning to play an instrument is a specialized skill that also enhances cognitive abilities and motor functions over time. Below is a link to a great article about choosing band.
Currently we have two elementary bands, our fifth grade band and our sixth grade band. Band classes meet once a week at each elementary school during special class time. We do have after school rehearsal opportunities for our students as well.
Continuing in Band
Once our students have completed elementary school they have the option to continue band as part of the Vance Junior Viking Band and later as a member of the Tennessee High School Mighty Viking Band. Website links for both bands can be found on the 'Staff' page of this website.
