REPERTOIRE BAND (Level 2) PERIOD 1 DIRECTOR = MR. HEBERTRepertoire Band is our middle band of students who are continuing to develop their musical skills for a higher level. They will be challenged to take more self-initiative in demonstrating they can make a positive contribution and function in a large-group setting. The music will require them to stretch their musical knowledge and abilities, and to prepare them for a greater musical experience.FRESHMAN BAND (Level 1) PERIOD 5 DIRECTOR = MR. OLSON
Freshman Band is our “entry level” band made up of incoming ninth grade band members from the middle schools. Since the director(s) do not know the new students, this is where they get familiar with your playing abilities and work ethic. Students may discover that there is lots of competition for the instrument they play. If students have ever considered trying a new instrument, this is a great band to do so. Needed instruments are: oboe, bassoon, horn, euphonium, tuba, etc. The purpose of this band is to bring the talents from various middle school backgrounds to build a unified group of musicians.
