Membership by audition only. This select ensemble is designed to challenge students who have shown exemplary achievement on their instrument. This band will focus on higher-level repertoire as well as further develop technical and motor skills, abilities in music reading and rhythm, articulation, resonant tone, interpretation, appreciation, performance skills, and self-discipline. In addition to learning sheet music and working through a third year method book, students will be expected to memorize six of the twelve major scales and the chromatic scale. Students in this band can look forward to building positive self-esteem and discovering how to become a self-directed learner through home practice, after school sectionals, and performance. Placement will be determined by need for balanced instrumentation and consent of instructor.

We use Foundations for Superior Performance in this group.
