New To Band

Trust the magic of new beginnings…

First thing’s first… what instrument will choose YOU?

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

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.

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