Band Program

PWS Band Handbook 2017-18.doc

Last year we went on our trip to Washington D. C. and the students had an incredible time. This year we will be going to Canobie Lake Park to compete. Our band consists of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. The students work very hard to accomplish the goal of performing in each concert. It take much dedication to be a successful band student.

This year we are working on pieces from level 1 1/2 to level 3+. Much of the music takes students out of there comfort zone because they are trying to play notes and rhythms that are harder than they ever played before. I encourage mistakes day in and day out because the students learn so much more each time they try to fix something. It is not just a wonderful experience for them, but also for me!

The winter concert is held in the PWS gymnasium and the district nights are held in the LHS gymnasium. Admission is $2.00 per person or $5.00 per family. We are always in need of parent volunteers to assist with the set up and break down of concerts. Thank you for supports your child's music education.
