Description: The goal of Beginning Band is to teach a band instrument to someone who may or may not have had any prior musical experience.  The student may begin on flute, clarinet, trumpet, or trombone.  Later in the year they may switch to other instruments of the band such as saxophone, percussion, horn, etc.  The teacher will demonstrate all of the instruments the first day of class and will check lips, hands, and teeth to make sure they choose an instrument they can be successful playing.  You will also be given information on renting or buying an instrument.  Please do not choose an instrument until after the first class meeting.  We will have two concerts per year and possibly a band festival in March.  Attendance is required at all performances.  Class meets twice a week until January, then we will have sectionals every other week, so you may not need to come both days each week.  Students are expected to practice 20-30 minutes a day, 5 times a week.  Sheet music will be on loan to the student and must be turned in when done.  Students from Intermediate, Advanced, and Wind Ensemble who want to learn a second instrument will be put on a waiting list for Beginning Band until September, then if there is still room in the class they will be able to join.  If you are playing a second instrument, have already played in band a year, and you obtain Robin’s approval, you only have to come to band on Monday.  If you have any questions, email Robin at stangla@comcast.net.
