Students in 4th-6th grades can participate in the elementary band. Students choose an instrument and learn to properly play and care for their instruments. They learn to play properly to create the best possible sound. Students also learn to read music, play in rhythm in an ensemble, and follow a conductor. Private lessons are offered to enhance a student’s understanding of their instrument’s techniques.
Band students attend group instruction 3 times per week for 30 minutes. The director may call for small group classes on an as needed basis. Students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves as they prepare to perform in chapels and concerts throughout the school year. They perform as the entire band as well small ensembles.
