This ensemble is for students who have little or no musical background and are looking to learn to play a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument. Due to size and comprehension requirements needed to operate their instrument, we usually recomend that student wait until 4th or 5th grade to enroll in this program.
This ensemble places emphasis on the continued development and reinforcement of basic musical skills. We will build upon the accomplishments achieved in the Beginning Band and work to increase facility and knowledge of our instruments. Students who participate in this ensemble must have successfully completed our Beginning Band program or have demonstrated the abiltiy to perform at expected levels by audition.
This ensemble focuses on the development of higher level skills and musical expression through the performance of a wide range of modern and classic band literature. Students who participate in this ensemble must have successfully completed our Intermediate Band Program (usually two years) or have demonstrated the ability to perform at expected levels by audition.
