This class is offered for students with no former band experience or reviewing the fundamentals (“Fresh Start”). Students will choose an instrument from the brass, woodwind, or percussion family and apply the fundamentals of posture, tone production, articulation, instrument care, and rhythm and note reading. Students supply their own instruments, with the exception of tubas, as well as a first year method book. Students taking beginning band can look forward to building positive self-esteem and discovering how to become a self-directed learner through home practice and performance.

The Standard of Excellence Book 1 is used in this group.
