The concert band is split between four classes that meet during the school day and is for students with at least 3 years of ensemble experience and fundamental skills in instrumental performance and music-reading.
Literature is primarily drawn from the NCBA Grade 2 and 3
difficulty levels and covers a wide range of musical styles.
Focus is on development of
fundamental tone production, technical skills, ensemble sensitivity, self-expression, independent music decision-making, student leadership and character development through musical literacy
and public performance.
Students are eligible for the ensemble by enrollment in a band course during the previous school year or through audition with the band director.
