“And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:17
The Band is a beautiful picture of our Christian walk. One instrument is not better than any other. We must watch one director in order to play and perform our best. We as Christians must work together to follow our director, Jesus Christ.
Band Grades 4-5
Students have the opportunity to have a private/small group lesson on their desired instrument once a week. These students may choose from the basic band instruments for their instruction.
Band Grade 6
Band 6 will focus on furthering knowledge of an instrument. Continued reinforcement of posture, breathing, hand positions, embouchure, and instrument care will be stressed. Emphasis will be placed on learning note names, fingerings, how to count rhythms, tone quality, intonation, and basic knowledge of musical terms.
Concert Band Grades 7-8
Concert Band will build off of and continue the growth of knowledge and skills learned in Band 6. Emphasis will be placed on scales, tone quality, and more advanced musical skills.
Symphonic Band Grades 9-12
Symphonic Band continues to promote instrument knowledge and care. There is focus on advanced musical skills and practices. Members of the Symphonic Band have the opportunity to participate in All-District Band and All-VA Band. Selected students have also been a part of the VA Tech Honors Band.
