Welcome Back, Musicians!
Here are some important dates to remember throughout the school year!
Powers Band Concert - October 30, 2018
Christmas Concert - December 11, 2018
Spring Concert - May 21, 2019
These classes will facilitate students to work in an ensemble while learning music fundamentals. Band class will cover instrumental methods and performance. In choir class, students will learn proper vocal technique and sound production. Students will also learn a variety of music literature from classical to contemporary. Over the course of the year, students will develop critical listening skills and team building as they hone their performance abilities.
Grades will reflect the daily growth of the student. To succeed as an ensemble, each musician needs to be prepared, be focused, and have a positive attitude.
