‘One band, one sound.’

If you have always wanted to make music, the MBA Band Department welcomes you. Their motto is “one band, one sound.” Their proudest achievement for the 2014-15 school year has been the Marching Band. The Marching Band has received accolades from across the city at various parades and festivals. Moreover, the Drumline and the Jazz Band received high honors at this year’s Heritage Festival in Orlando. The band department is dedicated to music education, as well as, scholarship opportunities for its participants.
