7th Grade Intermediate Band
Welcome 7th Grade Chargers to AFMS Band!
We are excited to get the school year started and make some music!
Seventh Grade Band is Intermediate Band and most students have had at least one year of experience playing their instrument. We begin the year by building on music fundamentals from Sixth Grade Band and add more advanced musical concepts and skills as we grow as musicians. Seventh Grade Band is divided into two classes: woodwinds (flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, and bari sax) and brass/percussion (trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium/baritone, tuba, and percussion). Classes meet separately each day but combine for concerts and field trips, etc.
Seventh graders have the opportunity to participate in Pep Band and Jazz Band along with eighth graders. More information will come about these groups after the school year starts. Seventh graders are encouraged to check out the Honors Band page and consider auditioning for All-County and All-District Band.
