This year-long ensemble course is designed to provide young musicians with their first experiences playing a band musical instrument. The course is designed to provide a structured, musical environment in which students learn the rudiments of playing a musical instrument. By the end of the year, students are capable of producing an instrument-appropriate sound and possess ensemble skills and age-appropriate technique. Students are well on their way to a lifelong appreciation for music by the end of this course. The fifth and sixth grade band performs at the Winter Concert and the Spring Concert.
