Beginning, Intermediate, Concert, Symphonic, and Jazz Bands are available depending on skill and grade level. Beginning students start in fifth grade (10 years old) or older and have very little or no training in music. Students progress through each level as their skills increase. By the time students reach Symphonic Band they will be proficient enough to perform multiple levels and styles of music with great musicality and expression. The instrumentation for traditional concert band includes woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
