Upper School School Bands

This class/course is a performance based instrumental music ensemble. Students must have previous experience in band and be able to perform and read music at a proficient level.  Instruments included are Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, Tuba and Percussion. Piano/Keyboards and Bass Guitar are by invitation/audition only. Please contact the Band Director.

While performing as a unified ensemble, students will enhance their literacy skills in music notation and learn the fundamentals of music theory, musical concepts, and music history, as well as develop technical expertise on their instrument.  Using the performance repertoire as a basis of study, students work toward scheduled after-school performances which serve as assessments for midterm and final grades. Additional grades are based on individual/group performance assessments and written assignments.

Prerequisites/Conditions:

Prior band experience and music reading at a proficient level.
