Grade 4 Band

Any YES student wishing to study a wind or percussion instrument is welcome to join the band.

Every year we have many students who choose to join our beginner band program in grade 4. These students will be grouped into beginner lessons that meet once a week throughout the school year. Contact Mr. Ciechomski at YES or HMS for more information on starting a band instrument.

The grade 4 band program builds the students' skills on their instrument. The main text is the lesson book "Sound Innovations." As the months pass and students have gained some playing ability, the entire grade 4 musicians will assemble as a full ensemble. Before these rehearsals commence, a letter will be sent home listing all the rehearsal dates and times.

Students in grade 4 band perform in concerts in February and May. In addition to our concerts, the band members also participate in local parades in May and July!
