Beginning band is for students who have never played the particular instrument of their choice.   Students will learn how to play the particular instrument and begin the process of reading music and learning to play together as a group.  If your student has not decided on a particular instrument, sign up for an instrument try-out with Mr. Bratcher to see what fits best.

The students are expected to attend one rehearsal and practice at home 5-7 times each week. They will perform in at least two concerts.

After a year in beginning band, the student will automatically progress to intermediate band.

The rehearsal location and time for beginning band is as follows:

Monday 9:00-10:20 Netherwood Park
Tuesday 3:10-4:30 Riverside
Thursday 10:25-11:45 Los Lunas
Friday 12:20-1:40 Netherwood Park
