Band

Concert Band is designed to give continuing students further training with their instruments by exploring a broader range of techniques, rhythms and music.  Areas of concentration include varying key and time signatures, individual tuning, ensemble   balance, and music history.  The Concert Band includes students in grades six, seven, and eight.  Previous instrumental training is srongly encouraged.
 
Symphonic Band is designed to further develop our students through the introduction of more advanced music, techniques, and concepts. The Symphonic Band is made up of students in grades nine through twelve, and the advanced Middle School students may audition for placement into the Symphonic Band.  Throughout the year, students will have numerous opportunities to perform both collectively and individually.  Previous instrumental training is required.
 
 
Jazz Band is open to any students who have had at least one year of band experience.  The Jazz Band provides an opportunity for the students to play other styles of music.  They will learn the basics of the jazz style, as well as having the opportunity for developing improvisation.
  
The Academy band program is  a member of the Alabama Bandmasters Association.  Through the ABA, the band students have opportunities to participate in several opportunities which include the Solo and Ensemble Festival, the All-State Band, District Honor Band, and the Music Performance Assessment.  The band program has been blessed with great success in these areas.
