Mann Middle School, part of the Abilene Independent School District in Abilene, Texas, is a CC campus of approximately 890 students.
Band is a curricular course with certain extracurricular components. Band classes at Mann Middle School meet daily for approximately 45 minutes. Beginning Band classes meet in like-instrument groups focusing on fundamental performance techniques. Beginning classes offered include:
- Oboe and Bassoon
- Alto Saxophone
- F Horn
- Trumpet (High Brass)
- Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba (Low Brass)
Students with a year or more of playing experience will be grouped into one of two fully instrumented bands:
- Symphonic Band is our varsity band
- Concert Band is our nonvarsity band
Supplemental instruction through private lessons is available for all students from a highly-qualified team of independently contracted expert private teachers.
Both the Symphonic and Concert bands participate in University Interscholastic League Concert and Music Reading (Sightreading) Evaluation each year. In addition, all students are eligible and encouraged to participate in All-Region and Solo and Ensemble events. Our philosophical mission is to provide every student with a positive, challenging, and relevant musical experience regardless of his or her level of proficiency.
The Mann Middle School Band faculty includes Mrs. Amber Moore, Ms. Emma Hoover, Ms. Alanna Culrey and Mr. Drew Young.
