Therefore the requirement for this class is at

least one year of music instruction on the

instrument the student is going to play in band.

 This class is geared primarily toward 6th

graders who already play the band

instrument they have chosen for

middle school.  


This class meets during a beginning band period

2 or 3 days per week. In this class the students

explore 10 major scales plus chromatic,

working on intonation, sight reading,

and improving their tone by the use of

proper posture and air support. This

group may perform a few songs at the fall concert with Beginning Band and Concert Band and will usually join the Concert Band for our Spring Performance. If intermediate band is large enough, it may be its own band as has happened in past years.  Most students in Intermediate Band go onto audition for Golden Eagle or Wind Symphony for their 7th grade year.
