7th Grade Band

7th Grade Band
Class Description:
Concert Band 7 – 8 Grade 7-8 (one year) The 7th and 8th grade band experience is an extremely important time in the musical development of each band student. 7th and 8th grade bands provide a continued developmental experience for the young musicians. Harmony instruments will be introduced to the ensemble providing a new interest in performing concert music. The amount of playing time, as well as home practice and private lessons, will dramatically increase the musical ability of each student. The bands will perform on the annual Holiday Program as well as the spring Pops Concert. The opportunity to perform in solo and ensemble contest and jazz band is a new addition to each student’s list of musical experiences. Students enrolled in 7th or 8th grade band are not required to take Music 7 or Music 8.

Class Announcements

All seventh grade band members are working in their Standard of Excellence Books. All instruments need to go home on the weekends for practice. Practice at home is very important and is key for success. The first concert of the year is the Holiday Concert December 18, 2018 at 7 p.m. in the middle school gym. 

Seventh graders have the option of attending their first Solo & Ensemble Contest. Students may form an ensemble (trio,quartet,etc) or prepare a solo to be performed at a district contest. An adjudicator will rate their performance and provide positive comments for the continued growth of the student's musicianship. We will provide transportation for the students who do participate, but encourage parents, family and friends to come and support the performances. The contest is held at Stanton Middle School on April 13, 2019. Further information will be coming in the following months.

The final concert of the year will be the Pops Concert on May 14, 2019
