About Sixth Grade Band
Sixth grade marks the second year/level of band in the BPS Band program. The objective of sixth grade band is to continue the development of fundamentals introduced in fifth grade band. In addition to strong fundamentals, students will develop effective practice strategies and continue to improve on their ensemble skills. Students will perform a variety of music throughout the year including classical, marches, multi-cultural, and popular. Throughout the year, the CMP model will be used to give students a comprehensive approach to learning their pieces. Students have the opportunity to perform in the Jazz Band (open to all), the Jazz Ensemble (by being selected from auditions), and Symphonic Band (by being selected from auditions). Students will have the opportunity to perform a solo at the Solo/Ensemble Contest. The band will perform in four concerts.
