The Beginning Bands are classes available to all students at the Headwaters Campus interested in joining a musical group, regardless of age. Students who enroll in Beginning Band choose an instrument to play during their band career. After they choose, the students are taught how to set up, take apart, handle, and play their instrument! More than this, the students learn ensemble skills and play in large and small groups before embarking on their secondary band journey. Beginning Band meets every other day, during 2nd and/or 6th periods. Beginning Band students also take instrument section lessons once a week. After one year of Beginning Band, students are then placed in their appropriate next band, either Middle or High School level. The Beginning Bands perform roughly one concert per semester.
Current Concert Repertoire:
- Banana Boat Song
- Largo from New World Symphony (Dvorak)
- Theme from Tetris
Next concert: Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 PM
