    Our Band Program

    K-2nd Grade: Students use their voices, their bodies and rhythm instruments to develop their musicianship.  We enable students to develop music skills and an awareness of the elements, concepts, language, and applications of music. The content will include, but not be limited to: singing, moving, listening, playing instruments, creating music (melodic and rhythmic patterns), melodic, rhythmic, and movement improvisation, analysis of form, style, genre, and performance, role and influence of music and musicians, connections between music and other subject areas.
    3rd Grade - Middle School Band: The goals of this program are to introduce the student to performing music on an instrument, working within a group of other musicians, and help them progress to performing groups at the Middle School and Senior High level. We enable students to develop fundamental skills on wind or percussion instruments through the refinement and performance of elementary level band literature. The content will include, but not be limited to, the following: individual and ensemble techniques, music literacy, elements and characteristics of music, improvisation, composition, and arranging, performance analysis, role and influence of instrumental music and musicians, connections between music and other subject areas, instrument care and maintenance and responsible participation in music activities.
