We are excited for this 2018-2019 school year, and we believe this year is going to be our best year yet!
COMPREHENSIVE MUSIC EDUCATION

Band is introduced to fifth graders in beginning band with hopes of them continuing on into the Middle School and High School Band program.

Students will also learn the following components:
Music Theory (Reading, writing, rhythm studies and understanding terminology)

Music History (Composer biographical info, historical and cultural relevance and the significance of music during certain periods)
Music Appreciation (Exposure to different genres of music)
