The mission of the band program is to help students develop the talents and abilities God has given them and to encourage them to use those talents to glorify Him. Band instruction begins in fifth grade and progresses through senior high. Older transfer students may begin instruction in one of the standard band instruments by taking private lessons. MMBA offers private lessons in flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, stringed instruments, and orchestral percussion.
All three bands listed below perform in MMBA’s Christmas and spring concerts and participate in the Illinois Association of Christian Schools (IACS) Fine Arts Competition. Senior high band competes at both the state and national level.
