Group band lessons are taught using “Sound Innovations.” This method book comes with a DVD giving the student a visual guide to help in the early stages of development. This book also comes with a Play along CD. Using this CD to practice with will enable a student to improve aspects of their playing such as rhythm, pitch, range, and overall musicianship. Plus, it’s just fun to play along with a band at home. As students progress, music (full band arrangements) is added to further the development and to prepare for performances.
Concert band is made up of intermediate and advanced students. More emphasis is put on ensemble playing and a wide variety of band arrangements are used to achieve a higher level of musicianship. In addition to a winter and spring concet, students are encouraged to participate in a variety of performances opportunities throughout the year.
