6th GRADE BEGINNER BAND

The 6th grade band program (beginner band) at our various elementary schools is the foundation for the Raider Band Program.

  • To develop and grow music vocabulary and theory

  • To introduce and master fundamental instrumental technique and musical ability

  • To learn and demonstrate the process of creating and perfecting music through various concerts and performance opportunities

  • To prepare for junior high school band
