We are eager to walk alongside our students as they grow from Primary School to Upper School and make music a part of their life.
Upper School Band
Concert Band performs for select shows and concerts throughout the school year, as well as at competitions for solo, large and jazz band ensembles. Individual musicianship is emphasized and cultivated. Fundamental and advanced musicianship skills are continued through the study of concert literature, contests and sight reading.
Jazz Band focuses on big band swing music, blues forms and individual improvisation over chord changes. The band will learn how chord progressions function in jazz music and study music theory to learn how to improvise solos within those chord progressions.
Middle School Concert Band
We strive to build competition experience while building a repertoire of musical knowledge for each student. This knowledge encompasses verbiage, musical notation, musical concepts and playing experience. The students gain experience on their instruments by sight reading, expanding their range, performing and by learning new songs.
