Concert Band is open to students who have 2 or more years previous band experience and have a desire to continue developing their skills on a wind or percussion instrument. No audition is required for this class. Students will develop greater skills in ensemble playing while reinforcing their knowledge of fundamentals such as proper posture and breath support, instrument position, and tone production. Students will learn about great composers of wind band repertoire and will develop a greater understanding of what makes an excellent performance. Concerts will be scheduled throughout the year, and attendance at each performance is mandatory.
