The sixth grade is the first year of band for students at Northwest Rankin Middle School. The 6th Grade Band is separated into four separate classes that are taught by Mr. Pickering, Mr. McDonald, and Mrs. Bobo.

The 6th Grade Band works very hard on the fundamentals of music throughout the year and to show their progress they perform together (100+ students!) in a concert at the end of each semester. They are also a great help to us during 5th grade recruiting when they perform for their former teachers and classmates during the annual 5th Grade Tour.
