Concert Band is designed to teach teamwork, self-discipline, and develop higher level thinking skills necessary to express one’s self through music. Instruction will build on the student’s fundamental playing skills to develop intermediate to advanced skills. This course better prepares students for participation in Wind Ensemble.
Students will perform in a minimum of two concerts a year. Students have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular performing ensembles such as district honor band, district solo and ensemble festival, pep band, pit orchestra, etc.
This course is an extension of the concepts developed in middle school band. Previous participation in middle school band is strongly encouraged.
