7th Grade Band



Band is offered as an elective course in the 7th Grade. It is a continuation of 6th Grade Band.

Students in 7th Grade Band have full band rehearsals every day for 43 minutes. We also have weekly sectionals for 20-25 minutes. Our curriculum includes concert performances and some small ensemble work in the spring. Our students will work with a wide array of technology to develop their playing skills and understanding of music theory. The emphasis in our music curriculum is to create, perform, reflect, and connect with music and with others.
