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.

How to submit playing tests!
Playing Tests are due EVERY MONDAY. Please read the above Rehearsal map for details on what each playing test will be on. We are having a "Mock" Playing test this Friday IN CLASS Below, please download and print out directions on how to submit your playing test. In the end... if you can't get the CHARMS App and you don't have a recording device, I will do the test live. I much prefer not to take time in class for playing test! I would rather grade when I have time to carefully listen and give back meaningful feedback
