About Band

The BCS Band program began in 2007 with 12 wind players. Our current program is home to 51 wind and percussion players in grades 6­-8. We complete several performances throughout the year with standard and new repertoire.

Advanced Band

Students in 7th or 8th grades that have participated in band for at least one year will perform in our advanced band. Here, students will get to experience a high level of music repertoire as well as audition for the Rockingham County All­-County band.


Congrats to Makaela, Taylor, Kathryn, and Ruben for making the 2015-2016 Rockingham County All-County Band!

Beginning Band

Any student in 6th or 7th grade wanting to learn to play an instrument can sign up for our beginning band class. Students will learn to read music, basic music theory, pre­-Baroque music history and start learning to become proficient on an instrument.

Students in beginning band can play flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or percussion. Saxophones and percussion are often popular among students, so there is a limited number of positions for these instruments. Students will select their instrument the first few weeks of school, so purchasing an instrument before the school year begins is not recommended.

Spring Concert
