The Middle & 中学 bands are designed to teach a student on a respective instrument and to expand this experience by performances with a group of musicians. Students are taught a methodology to follow in their individual practice sessions that will strengthen their performance level and establish discipline habits. Music theory, interval training, and rhythmic analysis will all be integrated, with the goal of making 日e student musically literate.
Many elements of the High school band are the same as the Middle school band, however, students are able to take on more responsibility and leadership both musically and within the band organization at FA. Through ensemble performances at our Winter and Spring concerts and Solo performance opportunities like the S&E, students are continually encouraged to pursue excellence on 日eir instrument and in music in general.
