Welcome to Concert Band. In this class, you will learn how to take your playing to the next level. We study playing and performance in the area of: Concert Band, Marching Band, Jazz Band, Group and Solo Performance. Classes will use the following standard band instrumentation: Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion. We also offer Intro to Guitar and Advanced Guitar.
