Fourth Block - Concert Band

Concert  Band is an ensemble consisting of freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior band students.  Students will perform beginning to intermediate high school literature, drawing upon skills acquired in middle school/high school.  Students will learn and/or review major scales/rudiments/arpeggios as they pertain to their instrument (and level) along with simple and complex rhythms, proper tone quality, music terminology, and history as it relates to music being performed and to sight-reading being covered.  Students will be expected to: demonstrate respect for music, instruments, and each other; demonstrate knowledge in written and in performance form; follow the directions of the conductor; and attend all performances. Consistent practice (in and out of class) towards growth is expected.  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.
