Band is a co-curricular group. It is a class students take to learn your instrument, music notation, ensemble playing, and prepare for local concerts. Students will also have the opportunity to audition for honor groups and prepare solos and ensembles for festival performances, both during class and in afterschool rehearsals should they choose to pursue those opportunities. Uniforms are semi-formal solid black with orange ties or scarves. There is a one-time cost of $10 for an orange tie or scarf. Help is available if the cost is prohibitive. The cost for instruments varies widely from nothing (if a student is interested in learning an instrument that the school already has functioning and available) to a monthly fee to rent an instrument from a music store. More information is available from Mrs. Ayres if you are interested.
