This course is designed to give the student an enriching, comprehensive and relevant instrumental music education. This class provides many performance opportunities for the student in a variety of settings. The daily objective of the course is to foster and promote an appreciation and love for instrumental music as a performer and an active listener. As a member of the band program, group effort and cooperation are necessary to create a successful program. Band is a skilled effort in which each student is expected to show technical and musical growth throughout this course.
