Prerequisite: All students should have two or more years experience playing a standard string, wind, or percussion instrument or departmental approval.
Students meet four days a week and develop their playing skills by rehearsing scales, etudes, and standard band and string repertoire. They practice correct posture, breathing, instrument-specific playing techniques, rhythmic/tonal literacy, and musicianship. Students perform a variety of musical genres and learn to be well-rounded musicians. Students participate in two major on-campus concerts, pep rallies, lower school events, off-campus performances, and a short tour during ISW.
