Beginning Band is for any student that has never been in Band before. Students in ANY grade level can join! We have separate classes for middle school and high school beginning bands (although, they do get to perform all together for concerts). Students do not need any prior knowledge or even an instrument to join.
We take the first week to learn about all the different instruments (even try some out!) before making a decision on which instrument to play. Students will be given information on how to get an instrument (either a music store or the school - depends on the instrument).
After their first year in Band, students can participate in the advanced bands, marching band, and some students even learn MORE instruments by taking TWO Band classes!
Here are some of the instruments:
- French Horn
