This class is open to all students who have prior instrumental music experience. Concert performance skills are developed through group and individualized instruction. Students learn basic music theory and vocabulary, as well as basic playing fundamentals and sight reading skills. The class is designed to optimize the potential, talent, and musicianship of the intermediate level student, through the rehearsal and performance of quality wind band literature. Students enrolled in Concert Band are strongly encouraged to audition for All District Band and to take private lessons. Concert Band meets during the school day. Occasionally, after-school rehearsals may be scheduled in preparation for performances. Students are required to attend all rehearsals and performances.
