KMLES Band Program

Participation in the Kettle Moraine Lutheran Elementary School (KMLES) Band Program is a fun and rewarding experience available to all students in grades 5 through 8, regardless of musical experience. Besides learning how to play a musical instrument, students learn to perform in solo and group situations. In these groups they meet students from other Federation schools and are involved in making music with them.

How Does It Work?

During the school year, the band program has two major parts. Students will receive a weekly 20-minute lesson at their elementary schools from one of our instructors. These lessons will be held during the school day and will focus on individual concepts and growth. Group rehearsals will be held at KML on various Monday evenings through the year. The focus of these rehearsals is to work on group concepts and to prepare for various performances throughout the year. Instruments offered in the program include: Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone, Tuba and Percussion.
