Students must have the ability to obtain an instrument for the band ensemble. School instruments are available but are limited in instrument type and supply. School instruments are loaned on a first come first serve basis.
Taneyville Band will meet on assigned class periods and scheduled morning rehearsals. 7/8 band will meet on Monday/Tuesday, 5/6 band will meet on Thursday/Friday. Occasionally, both bands will meet together for additional rehearsal times during the school day. This year, band will be offered 3rd and 4th quarter.
There will also be a required performance at the end of the semester. This will be for the Spring concert, as well as, for contests during the Mark Twain Conference competition.
Being a member of the Taneyville Band gives opportunities for students to perform in ensembles or as soloists for the school and community. The program's mission is to develop musicianship, instrumental performance abilities, musical knowledge, and creativity.
Members are expected to participate in all activities and attend the mandatory rehearsals. Members will be expected to have a positive and productive attitude that will help maintain the ensembles at a high standard of productivity and performance.
