• Beginning Band is a one-year class and is open to students in grades 6-8 who have had little or no experience playing a band instrument. Previous musical training and music reading is of course helpful, but not necessary. All students will choose one of the following instruments at the beginning of the first semester: flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, or percussion/mallets. Beginning Band is a full year class with 3-4 performances. Private lessons are helpful and encouraged. Two hours of at-home practice (per week) is expected. Students will be tested on the music and exercises throughout the school year.
