    Grade 7 - Brass or Woodwinds (Grade 7 Percussion: Sign up for Woodwinds)

    Grade  8 

    This course is designed to take students from the basic skill level in seventh grade to allow students to expand their musical abilities in eighth grade. Opportunities for performances, both group and individual, are provided for all grades. Additional performance opportunities include participation in clinics, festivals, Region Band, All-State Band, and Solo and Ensemble performances. Practice is a very important part of the requirements of this class. Students will be expected to practice daily. Practice times will range from 20 to 30 minutes each day, depending on the materials covered and the student’s abilities. Students and parents should understand that daily practice is a requirement if they expect to improve as a student musician and make a positive contribution to the band program.
