Our band program is available to any and all students from 4th through 8th grades.  We offer the following bands:

CONCERT BAND

Students in Grades 6 through 8 may join Concert Band.  This is our advanced band for students who have been playing an instrument for at least one year.  Rehearsals for full band are every Wednesday right after school until 4:30 p.m.  The students receive a ½ hour group lesson every Friday during the school day.  The schedule rotates periods so students do not miss the same class each week.

INTERMEDIATE BAND

Students in Grades 5 through 6 may join Intermediate Band.  This band is set up for students who have been playing for a year in Cadet Band or are not quite ready for the challenge level of Concert Band.  Rehearsals are every Friday morning before school.  The students receive a ½ hour group lesson every Wednesday during the school day.  The schedule rotates periods so students do not miss the same class each week.

STIXX DRUM LINE

Our drum line is open to any students who are in Concert Band or Intermediate Band.  Students do not have to play drums in either band to participate in Drum Line.  All equipment is provided, no need to purchase another instrument.  We learn traditional marching band style music and also percussion ensemble music.  Rehearsals are before school on Mondays.
