8th Grade Advanced Band
Eighth Grade Band is Advanced Band and most students have had at least two years of experience playing an instrument. We begin the year by building on fundamentals of music from Sixth and Seventh Grade Bands and grow these musical concepts and skills as we rehearse and perform music of various styles and genres.
Eighth Grade Band is divided into two classes: winds (all woodwinds and brass) and percussion. Classes meet separately each day but combine for performances and field trips, etc.
Eighth graders have the opportunity to participate in Pep Band and Jazz Band (more information to come later in the year). Eighth graders are encouraged to check out the Honors Band page and consider auditioning for All-County Band and All-District Band.
