Any student in 6th or 7th grade wanting to learn to play an instrument can sign up for our beginning band class. Students will learn to read music, basic music theory, pre-Baroque music history and start learning to become proficient on an instrument.
Students in beginning band can play flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or percussion. Saxophones and percussion are often popular among students, so there is a limited number of positions for these instruments. Students will select their instrument the first few weeks of school, so purchasing an instrument before the school year begins is not recommended.
