Concert Band (Band 2) is a class for students in grades 6-8 who have already taken Beginning Band, or have auditioned for Mr. C and demonstrated an advanced ability in their instrument. Students are also encouraged to find a secondary instrument that is interesting and exciting for them to learn in class. Primary instruments may be rented or purchased through outside vendors, such as Riverton Music, Summerhays Music, Guitar Center, Amazon, etc., or there are a limited number of instruments available to rent through the school. Secondary instruments will be based on availability of school inventory. Students will learn advanced playing techniques and have more opportunities to perform both in school and off campus. Continuing the instruction from beginning band, students are still taught proper assembly and care of their instrument, creation of excellent tone through proper positioning and embouchure, and how to read and interpret basic music theory and notation.
