Wind Ensemble is a class exclusively for band students that have successfully passed an audition and received a director’s approval.
Students will be studying music and all of its elements through the performance of band literature at the highest level (NCBA Grades V & VI). Students will demonstrate the highest level of proficiency on their instrument and will demonstrate a thorough knowledge of playing fundamentals including scales, arpeggios and rhythms.
Wind Ensemble students will participate in 4-6 performances a year. They will be responsible for some after school rehearsals prior to concerts.
Wind Ensemble students should audition for all-district band or an honor band (CYWE, CSYO, Western Regional Orchestra, etc.).
