Our philosophy

The Bentonville Band program is dedicated to the teaching of music throughout many different activities. Although music is the main emphasis of the program we also teach about discipline, organization, cooperation and many other life skills. The band program is a great place to grow whether it is physically, musically or intellectually. The opportunities provided for each individual student in the Bentonville Instrumental Music Program are focused on offering experiences that will result in finding joy and excitement in the creative and aesthetic environment of music. Through the various genre of music performance groups and classes offered by our music department, it is our hope that each student will find music to be a personal experience, and that he/she will desire to have music as a part of their lives forever.
