The band program is available to all students in 4th through 7th Grade. Students receive instruction in a small group twice a week for 30-45 minutes in grade level and/or like-ability groupings. Lessons are scheduled so students will have as little interruption in their daily schedules as possible. Students are expected to practice regularly (3 times a week for 15 min) for homework.
