Individual Practice

Students in grades 4-8th grade have the opportunity to participate in band. Fourth graders meet from 7:30-8:05am on Mondays and Thursdays. Fifth-Eighth graders meet 7:30-8:05am Tuesdays and Fridays.

It is very important that band students practice at home on a regular basis.  It is recommended that students practice for at least 20 minutes/day. Band students are expected to have 90-120 minutes of individual practice each week—aside from band practice.


Private Lessons

Private lessons are a great way to improve skills and get extra help with what students are learning in band. Students are highly encouraged to partake in private lessons—even if they are just once a week.
