Students can begin their instrumental music journey in 5th grade on a wide variety of band instruments with Mr. Sandersfeld. Through weekly lessons and before-school ensemble rehearsals 5th graders are given a fun and rewarding introduction to playing in band. The 5th grade band performs two concerts through the year in the district. Additionally, select students are given the opportunity to perform at Elementary Honor Band in the spring.
In 6th grade our young musicians continue their instrumental music education by developing their technique and musicianship in weekly lesson with Ms. DiGiorgio. They rehearse as an ensemble Tuesdays, Thursdays, and alternating Fridays during school. The ensemble performs at 3 concerts through the school year. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Solo and Ensemble in January, hosted at Mid-Prairie, and select students are invited to Elementary Honor Band in the spring.
