    The Band Experience

    The band program is for distinguished students seeking additional music experience in a large instrumental performing ensemble.  This ensemble is treated as a professional performance opportunity of high quality and caliber beyond the general music classroom.  All of the repertoire chosen for this ensemble have higher than average music demands and challenges every student’s instrumental and music theory abilities.  We are looking forward to the upcoming seasonal winter and spring concerts as well as additional volunteer community concerts throughout the year.  Students are expected to participate the full year with appropriate behavior and attendance while continuing to achieve academic goals in the general classroom.  Band registration is open to all students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.  Here’s to another successful year of playing beautifully together and making musical memories to last a lifetime.
     

    Rehearsals

    All rehearsals are held in the elementary library from 7:40-8:40 am on Mondays for all band members, Wednesdays for flute, clarinet, and saxophone players, and Thursdays for trumpet, trombone, and drum players.  Students are expected to be prepared for rehearsal with their instrument, music stand, folder, sheet music, and a pencil.  Students will be released to their classrooms during student arrival.  For student safety, please wait for Mr. Beere or a security personnel direction to release students in the front lobby prior to rehearsal start times.
