Green Acres Middle School Band
Thank you for visiting our website for the Green Acres Middle School Band! We are excited about the upcoming school year. Ms. Garrett is the band director and music technology teacher. She has taught instrumental music and music technology in the Birmingham City Schools System for 24 years.
Recruiting and enrollment for band will begin the first week of August. Students will be using the 'Tradition of Excellence Band Method Book 1' for their instrument. It is an updated, technology-rich book that will guide students in group study. The book includes IPS computer software to help students in their music studies individually and their practice time at home.
There are many stores that students may use to purchase or rent a band instrument. Please see the box above that lists stores and links to websites. Students will be responsible for securing a band instrument, book and cleaning supplies / accessories to participate. (See Supplies)
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you in August!
