8th Grade Band



Band is offered as an elective course in the 8th Grade. It is a continuation of 7th Grade Band.

Students in 8th Grade Band have full band rehearsals every day for 43 minutes. Our curriculum includes concert performances, solo & ensembles, and some marching in the spring. Our students will work with a wide array of technology to develop their playing skills and understanding of music theory, and to begin to compose & arrange their own music.

8th grade band students do not have lessons outside of class rehearsals at this time. Students and parents are highly encouraged to take advantage of private lessons instructors in the area. Please contact Mrs. Harwood if you'd like a list of recommended teachers.
