Symphonic and Concert Band Repertoire

Band Repertoire

Respectful behavior, personal accountability, and preparedness will be expected for each individual who attends band class, regardless of skill or experience.  We follow the same guidelines for behavior as the Pinnacle Classical Academy Handbook. Our ensemble performs throughout the community and needs to maintain a respectful demeanor to represent the culture at PCA.  Teachers, parents volunteers, and peers will be treated with respect and kindness, and the same will be shown to our musicians in attendance.

Important Dates for the upcoming school year

  1.  Movie Fundraiser: Friday, Jan 18th.  $5.00 Pizza Dinner and fun! Choir, Ukulele Club, and Band invited to attend

Classroom Overview

Students in grades 6-8 meet for General Music for a 9 week semester per school year.  Students in all grade levels learn elements of music (steady beat, rhythm, melody, texture, timbre, dynamics), music theory, music history, and demonstrate proficient knowledge in musical performance through assessed classroom performances.  High School students have Band as an elective if they choose to continue to take music courses.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Middle School and High School students are given the opportunity to perform in a concert and symphonic band ensemble, as well as a choral ensemble.  Students meet once a week after school to rehearse for their specific ensemble. Students who choose band as an elective in high school will meet during the school day, Monday-Friday.  Students in grades 3-5 have a Bright Beginners Violin Class taught by Mrs. Sharon Lawrence.

The High School Ukulele Club will meet every Monday to rehearse chords and strumming techniques.  All clubs hold two formal concerts a year and several informal performance opportunities are held throughout the year.
