Welcome to the Batavia School's Music page! Feel free to look around the website and check out what is going on. The Batavia School's Music program is located in Batavia, Ohio and are a vital part of the Batavia Local School District. Approximately 10% of the student body of both Batavia High School and Batavia Middle School participates in at least one of the band programs offered. The primary goal of the band is to provide young people with an experience in music that is both enjoyable and educational.
All students are taught a number of non-musical skills that have importance in lifelong learning. Students share their art with audiences as they travel to football games, parades, concerts, and contests. Students learn responsibility, self-discipline, cooperation, time-management, stage presence, good grooming, and the art of sacrificing personal wishes for the benefit of a larger group. Of course, the friendships and good times are as important as anything else.
"Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other form of education, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul." -Plato
