This performance ensemble will be made up of all interested string, brass, percussion, and woodwind players. The group will learn the foundations of basic musicianship and apply those skills to their respective instruments. Enrollment and the interests of the students will largely drive the repertoire of this ensemble. Students will play band pieces, string pieces, and some repertoire that will combine everyone.
Students will be able to sight read rhythms and simple melodies. Additionally, they will be able to perform prepared pieces with appropriate phrasing, dynamics, intonation, and articulation. Students will play confidently alone and with others.
