And We’re Off –

It was such an exciting and wonderful first day back to school. I enjoy the kids so much and look forward to seeing them every year. I’m always amazed at how much they have grown over the summer.

The beginning band is excited about starting something new and are taking the first steps to locate instruments. The 7th and 8th Grade Bands are ready to dive in and will start playing right away. Students with instruments at home will want to make arrangements to get instruments to BMS for rehearsals on Monday.


Beginning Band –

The beginning band has found the band building and is off to a great start. Congratulations if you’re a sixth grade parent and your child has shared this site with you. They are taking responsibility and sharing a great resource with you.

Many students that rented from Paige’s received instruments today and many more are making arrangements for instruments to be delivered. Paige’s will conduct another instrument display on August 28 at Oolitic MS from 5 – 7 pm. It is a great opportunity to speak to a Paige’s representative in person. You can also rent online at Click on the red button and look for Bedford MS band in the drop down menu. You can also rent an instrument for the year at Melody Music Shop in Bloomington.

Welcome Back –

I would just like to say Welcome back and thank you for being involved in the BMS Band Program. I am very proud of our kids and program. I am looking forward to a fantastic year and can’t wait to see what the students of 2014-15 accomplish.


Have a great week!
