About IMS Band

A little about The Independence Middle School Eagle Band…

The IMS band program is now in its 14th  year and is one of the largest middle school band programs in Palm Beach County.  We have been recognized as one of the outstanding middle school band programs in our state.  We have had over 500 students participate in the District Solo and Ensemble Festival, over 100  students have made the All District Band, and twenty three students have been selected for the All State Middle School Honors Band.  Bands at IMS have generated top ratings at both district and national band festivals.  We offer students a wide variety of musical experiences from jazz bands to marching bands; from solo and small ensemble work to concert band and large ensemble work; from private instruction to small group and large class instruction.  IMS band students can select from, and perform in a variety of ensembles.  Music students at IMS are limited only by the size of their dreams and their desire to do more.

…. Nobody has been the best…there is always room at the top…

Band can seem a little overwhelming at first, but if you take small steps, follow instructions, and take your music to heart, you will go far…real far…. in some cases further that you can imagine right now.
