First Colony Middle School Bobcat Bands

"The true beauty of music is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we, the musicians, are the messengers."

- Roy Ayers

Band Mission Statement

The goal of the First Colony Middle School Band Program is to teach our students to be disciplined and hard working team members through the joy and love of music. The Directors work very hard to be our best and we ask that our students work hard each day in class and in their practice at home. We greatly appreciate your support of your child's music education and promise to make your financial investment worthwhile. The Directors both have a great passion for music and really enjoy sharing it with the students every day.

House Points

The House with the most points when we end the competition in May will be awarded the House Cup for this school year, as well as some other kind of reward. Remember, your behavior and actions can both earn your House point or lose your House points!
