Middle School Band
The purpose of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills of wind and percussion instruments at the seventh and eighth grade level. Students who participated in the elementary band program will be given a more in-depth education on their own instruments and will be expected to perform at a higher level. Using their method books, students will be exposed to and be expected to play more difficult exercises with the guidance of their teacher. Supplemental materials will be handed out over the course of the year, which will aid them in mastering their own instruments and becoming better musicians. They will also be expected to perform at the annual Winter and Spring Concerts where students will play musical repertoire appropriate to their level as an exposition of their abilities and achievements.
