Description:

The Concert Band class meets daily during 1st/2nd Block. Beginning in 2019-2020, this band serves as a launching pad for students who are either new to band, coming back to band after years off, or for current band students in Symphonic Band who want to learn a secondary instrument or work on their own instrument at a beginning level. Beyond 2020, this band may serve as another band similar to the Symphonic Band, but working at a different pace and/or difficulty level.
