Time for Band at Green Acres Middle School
Thank you for visiting our website for the Green Acres Middle School Band! We are excited about the new school year for 2015-2016. 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 23 years.
Recruiting and enrollment for band will begin August 5th. 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!
