Band

In Band, students learn how to play a traditional band instrument of their choosing. Students learn standard instrumental techniques including posture, breathing, fingerings, and articulation. Students will learn how to read music and how to listen and practice with the goal of making beautiful sounds.

To engage students, we choose and arrange fun music, including contemporary hits and movie music. Students rehearse one hour per week and have performance opportunities throughout the school year. At the end of the year, students perform together in a Spring Concert Finale.

Available instruments include:

  • Flute
  • Clarinet
  • Alto Saxophone
  • Trumpet
  • Trombone
  • Electric Bass
  • Percussion

During the summer, we offer a JAM BAND in order to give students the opportunity to also learn how to improvise and compose music.
