Middle School Latest News
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. For our new members, welcome! For our returning members, welcome back!
6th Grade Band
The 6th grade band will spend the first few weeks testing instruments. All students have different builds, dexterity, and facial structures that can affect playing. We try to place students on an instrument that they are interested in while also placing on an instrument that will give them a great chance for success. We also must take into consideration the instrumentation of the group. There will be an Amro rental meeting on August 29th. We will send home more information as this event gets closer and testing proceeds. Students interested in getting ahead in instrument testing may stay after-school on August 12th until 4:30PM; pickup will be in the parking lot. Students will be dismissed through the gym lobby doors.
7th Grade Band
The 7th grade band will spend the first few weeks reviewing material from last school year; they will also develop technique, scales, rhythms, and work on some literature.
8th Grade Band
The 8th grade band will spend the first few weeks reviewing material from last school year; they will also develop technique, scales, rhythms, and football game literature.
The 7th/8th grade percussion class will consist of a lot of differentiation. There will be times in full group working on specific techniques and there will be grade specific times. It is expected for students to consistently be working and to follow instructions in order to be a productive class.
