6th, 7th, 8th Grade Band:

After their introduction to band in elementary school, students can continue with their instruments in a twice a cycle band class. Each grade prepares for two concerts and a competition with music that fits their level and talents. Every band member will be assigned a time in the cycle for a group lesson.

Jazz Band:

The school jazz band holds auditions in the fall for any saxophone (alto, tenor, baritone), trumpet, trombone, or drum set players in a regular band class and any guitar, bass, or piano players. The group meets before school on Wednesdays and Fridays and performs at both concerts and a Spring Festival. The dedicated students in jazz band play music much different than in concert band with styles such as swing, Latin, and rock.  For Jazz Band audition information click Here
