COURSE DESCRIPTION

Intermediate Concert Band
Grades: 9-12
1 -3 credits
Prerequisite: Prior experience in a school concert band

Intermediate Concert Band is an ensemble for all wind and percussion, instrumental musicians. Students receive large and small group instruction, along with sectionals designed to develop and refine performance skills in relation to wind band repertoire. As a band, students will explore, rehearse and perform literature from a variety of musical genres. Students will work to develop the ability to understand and convey the composer’s intent in order to connect the performer to the audience. This class continues the development of musicianship and vocal pedagogy but even more so in a choral context. Students participate in performance opportunities, during and outside of the school day, which support and extend the learning in the classroom.
