Grade Level Concert Bands
The concert band is the core of our band program. The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade bands rehearse everyday and meet during the school day. The ensembles perform at least 3 concerts per year, in addition to extra performance opportunities like community events and band festivals. Students will perform a variety of music during their tenure at RMS which includes:
Small Group Lessons
Lessons take place during band rehearsal and students do not miss any academic or exploratory class time. The curriculum focuses on specific playing skills for each instrument by learning and practicing scales, exercises, and etudes.
Throughout the year, students will attend sectionals to work on band music as a sectional. Sectionals enable the students to rehearse the music as a section rather than with the full band.
