New To Band

Trust the magic of new beginnings…

Check out our “New to Band” website for Madison City Schools!

First thing’s first… what instrument will choose YOU? Come to our Instrument Sorting Night to try them all! If you’ve missed it, no problem! Submit an interest form and we will get you SORTED out!

Check out the website above and the resources below. Hopefully they will be helpful for you as you start your band journey. It can be overwhelming, so please use your resources and take it one task at a time! Many questions can be answered with a bit of research. You just need to sign up for the class, and we will help you choose an instrument and teach you EVERYTHING from the beginning!

Please feel free to contact any of the DMS Band directors at if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you be part of our DMS Band family!
