BGSU Middle School Academy Band



What is the Middle School Academy Band?
The Bowling Green State University College of Musical Arts Middle School Academy Band program is an extra-curricular performance opportunity designed specifically for middle school band students in Northwest Ohio. This program includes full group rehearsals, sectional instruction, and elements of comprehensive musicianship, culminating in a performance in BGSU’s own Kobacker Hall. All rehearsals, sectionals, and activities will be led by music education faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students to create an engaging, individualized learning experience that will supplement your child’s school music instruction.
