JFKS 7th/8th Grade Band

This Band is for grades 7 and 8, and open to all interested students without an audition. The class meets 2 hours a week (generally on Tuesday and Friday afternoons) and continues preparing literature which expands their knowledge of technique, tone and ensemble playing. Students need to provide their own instrument (except some larger instruments such as tuba) and private lessons are strongly encouraged, but not required. Students perform in at least 2 concerts a year, and other events as selected by the group. Membership is approximately 60.

(Students who are members of this group have the opportunity to audition for and participate in the European Middle School Honor Band (grades 6-8) sponsored by AMIS (Association for the Music in International Schools)).
