Instrumental music is available to interested fourth through eighth grade students, who are invited to select from a variety of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments. Participating students receive heterogeneous group instruction from specialists on staff. Instruction is scheduled on a weekly basis, in 50-minute sessions.
Students who participate in the instrumental program also participate in the three performance bands; concert, wind ensemble and symphonic. Each of these bands performs for the school community multiple times throughout the year. Rehearsal is mandatory and takes place mornings before school. Our Band program reinforces our character development initiatives, but emphasizing responsibility and respect.
Students are also invited to participate in marching band and continue the school tradition of marching in the Memorial Day parade.
