Welcome to Beginning Band!
The Gorzycki Middle School Band program is dedicated to helping each student achieve success. Our band program offers opportunities that are not available in any other course. When joining band, every student will be instructed by an expert on their primary instrument. We are very fortunate to have one of the newest facilities in Austin ISD, which allows for students to have more one on one instruction. Through the study of instrumental music, students improve their higher level listening and thinking skills, as well as problem solving techniques. According to studies, learning a musical instrument will help to develop higher mental skills more than any other form of activity.
The Instrument Selection Day will be Saturday, January 26th from
in the Gorzycki Cafeteria/Commons
Please email Mr. Tieh at email@example.com, if you selected band as your 6th grade elective and need to select an instrument.
