Students will learn and perform ―corps-style marching techniques and playing techniques. Students will perform at all Groves home football games and playoff games as well as the Groves Invitational, MSBOA Marching Festival, and one other marching exhibition/competition. At the conclusion of football season the marching band will begin rehearsing inside as a concert band in preparation for 2nd trimester. Each student will be required to participate in marching band camp in August. Camp and performances are a requirement of the class.
Good news! Four years of marching band fulfills the 2nd physical education credit at Groves. All you have to do is fill out a waiver form and submit it to your counselor.
