8th Grade Bands

Our 8th Grade Bands start the beginning of the year in large ensembles consisting of a brass class, a woodwind class, and a percussion class. In this section of our curriculum students will continue to build on the skills that they were learning in 7th grade band to transition to our full time 8th grade bands.


A few weeks into the school year we will audition all 8th grade band students to placed into one of two ensembles. At the 8th grade level we have a top level band and a lower level band, so students will be placed in a respective band according to their skill level. Both bands will generally play two concerts a year, as well as traveling to band festival in the spring.
