Band is open to all students from grades five through eight. Although free of an auditioned entry, students must begin band courses in the 5th grade or 6th grade. Band students attend classes daily throughout the year. Instruction, heavily integrated with technology, includes teacher modeling, music theory culminating with practical application, performance, and composition. While technique is our primary focus, students also learn to read and perform music in accordance with the TEKS. Proficiency of these skills provides an easy transition into high school band and choir classes.
