First Block - Wind Ensemble

Wind Ensemble is an honors ensemble consisting of freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior band students. Students will perform advanced literature, drawing upon skills acquired in high school. Students will learn and/or review major scales/rudiments/arpeggios as they pertain to their instrument along with complex rhythms, proper tone quality, music terminology, and history as it relates to music being performed.  Students will be expected to: demonstrate respect for music, instruments, and each other; follow the directions of the conductor, audition for and/or participate in outside ensembles, and attend all performances. Consistent practice is expected and required.  This course meets the fine arts graduation requirement.

As with other ensembles this year, Wind Ensemble will look a bit different as we begin the 2020-2021 School Year. Our focus will initially be on skill development and "sharpening the saw" however we do have many exciting performance opportunities planned no matter what Plan we happen to be in.
