The band program is a year-long course that does not require previous musical experience. Students must begin band at the beginning of their 6th-grade year. Students may choose to play one of the following instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, or trombone. Auditions for the percussion section will be held at the end of the sixth-grade year for interested students.
Students will learn to read, write, and play music on their chosen instrument. The band program offers multiple extra-curricular opportunities including the jazz band, drum line, All-County Band, and individual solo opportunities. The 7th and 8th grade combined band travels each spring to various locations to perform for ratings in front of accomplished judges.
All students who are interested in learning new and exciting ways to express themselves through music are encouraged to sign up for the band!
