The band program at Venice Middle School is an opportunity for all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students to learn and polish their skills on a band instrument.
The Venice Middle Band regularly performs concerts for the community, marches in local parades and participates in the Florida Bandmasters Association Music Performance Assessments. In 2015, the Venice Middle Advanced Band received a Superior Rating for their performance.
With more and more students joining the Venice Middle band over the past few years, it has also helped the band program at Venice High School grow in numbers and talent.
Students start off in the Beginning Band program and move into the Advanced Band class the following year. Eighth grade students who participate in beginning band receive training and fundamentals that prepare them for performing at the high school level the following year.
