5th & 6th Grade Band is huge! We are going to have a BLAST this year making awesome friends and learning to play an instrument! Contact our AMAZING band director, Jeremiah Krites, with any questions: email@example.com
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.
What do I need for 5th and 6th Grade band?
Percussionists need to provide their own drum sticks and practice pad. Wind players will need to rent their instrument. We recommend Milano's Music! If you are playing a larger instrument, such as Euphonium or a tuba, you may be able to rent one from our band program. Please contact our band director if you have any questions!
