The band staff and I are beginning to discuss long-term facility needs with the admin in our district. We just paid off one bond and knowing how my district is we may be trying to pass another in the next 2-3 years to address other facility needs.
So we're beginning to design our "new" band hall.
What I'm looking for are dimensions. Our high school band is currently about 100, but in the next 2-4 years may begin pushing 150-170 if recruiting keeps up.
So my question is: For those with bands of about 140-160, what are the dimensions of your band hall? And is it big enough for your entire marching band with enough room to navigate?
If you will post the approximate size of your room, number of kids, and how appropriate the space is in your opinion.
