Instrumental music is available to all 5th graders at JFKS. Students who choose to play a woodwind, brass, or percussion instrument are part of a year-long ensemble which teaches the basics of their chosen instrument, good posture, tone, and music reading. Students are involved in a weekly band ensemble class as well as small group lessons. Instruments are provided by the school for a nominal rental fee. Students perform in one concert at the end of the school year. Advanced 5thgrade band students (with previous experience on a band instrument) may perform in this group and/or they may audition to be part of the advanced band.
When? Thursday, 2nd period
