Dear Bulldog Band Students and Parents,
Welcome to the Dutchtown Middle School Band Program. Congratulations on joining a tradition of excellence. Whether or not you are interested in a career in music, the instruction you will receive in this program will prepare you to be successful in your future activities – musical and otherwise. More importantly, you will be able to improve yourself and your musical expression. The DMS Band Program strives to improve your practice and study habits, while always leaving time for yourself, your loved ones, and other organizations.
The Bulldog Band gives you the ability to achieve and progress as individuals and as a team (band). This gives us the ability to organize ourselves and achieve our goals. Each member learns to rely on one another for musical standards, strong character, and a sense of responsibility to our ensemble. The DMS Band features a Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Beginning Band, Pep Band and Jazz Band. We have tried to cover every aspect of the program.
I am excited and ready to see each of you all become a part of the program. We have many things planned for this year, and your participation is important to our success. Again, get ready for a great year.
Mr. Michael A. Simmons, Jr.
