Open to beginning and intermediate musicians. This class will require some sectional rehearsals and concerts that might happen before or after school.

1129 Individual Technique-Instrumental Music

Students will learn music by performing as a soloist and in a small group setting. Students will learn to read, audiate, sing, and perform music as well as learn advanced instrumental techniques on their solo instrument or voice. Students will also learn a variety of musical styles, history and groups pertaining to their instrument so that they may perform as a soloist or in a small group. This class will perform one recital each semester and small groups may be asked to play ‘gigs’ in the community.

CVMS

1120 General Band

Students learn music by developing technique on a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument. Students will learn to read, audiate, sing, and perform music as well as learn instrumental techniques, fundamentals and styles. The Band instruments are: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Saxophone, Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba and Percussion.* The Band will perform four band concerts this year as well as NCNMMEA solo and ensemble festival. This class will require some sectional rehearsals and concerts that might happen after school.

*Students will be assigned an instrument based on interest, abilities, availability and establishing a balanced instrumentation. Meaning if we have 50 students in band, we can’t have 25 saxophone players, we need to have all of the instrument voices covered. Like with sports, every student will benefit if we have enough “players” at every “position.” (You can’t have a good football team with 20 quarterbacks)

Students and parents should contact their counselor to register. More information will be available on the band website espanolabands.wordpress.com and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @espanolabands.
