- Grade 8
Year-long; 8th Grade
During this year-long class in which the students meet every day, 8th grade band provides further development of tone production, technical skills and overall ensemble playing. More challenging literature is performed in a variety of styles. Students must already play an instrument, although some switching of instruments can occur with the permission of the teacher. Participation in public performances during and outside of the regular school day is a requirement. Opportunities for enrichment may include auditioning for and participating in 8th grade jazz band, Solo and Ensemble Contest and District Honor Band.
