Beginning Band 6
This is our beginning band program. Students are beginning the study of a musical instrument, having the choice of a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument. There is a teacher for each group of instruments. We focus on producing a good tone, having correct hand positions, good embouchure placement, learning rhythms, beginning music theory and teaching proper articulation for the students chosen instrument. We usually have two concerts a year (they are on hold at this time) and our priorty is to build a strong foundation for the student's early musical experience.
