The Beginning Band is a full year* beginning level group for students who are learning to play a band instrument for the first time. Instruction is focused on developing a solid foundation in note reading, tone production, rhythm, articulation, proper posture/hand position, and instrument care and maintenance. Students also learn basic music theory concepts and ensemble skills, such as balance and blend. Beginning Band members at St. Benedict School receive a 1 hr group lesson each week. As a performance date nears, the SBS beginning band students will join with beginning band students from other schools that participate in the GRSM Band Program and rehearse as a full ensemble.
Each student must bring their instrument to class every week. Appropriate instruments for the Beginning Band are trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet, saxophone and percussion (multiple instruments), and GRSM can provide information regarding purchase or rental options. The minimum age to participate is 9 years old. No previous music experience is necessary.
