6th Grade Band

Sixth Grade Band is a course for students who want to learn how to play a traditional band instrument. All students will choose from the following band instruments: flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, saxophone and percussion Students interested in joining band will be introduced to these instruments in the fall of the 6th grade year by Mr. Waldbillig.  Students will be able to determine which instrument they want to play while watching the representative feature each instrument.  No prior musical experience is needed, however, if a student has prior musical knowledge or experience, further opportunities will be given to challenge the student. During the first year, this course will cover the basics of tone production and musical literacy. Elements of music are introduced through exercises of increasing difficulty which give the student challenging and interesting problems to master through individual practice and class rehearsal. At the beginning of the second semester selected students (by audition) may switch to baritone, and tuba. Students in Sixth Grade Band will perform a minimum of two required concerts, one per semester, during the school year.
