The St. Joseph School Band draws student musicians from Grades 4 – 8 .
Our Advanced Band and Jazz Band generally consist of students in Grades 6 – 8. Students may receive instruction on brass, woodwind, or percussion instruments.
Brass: trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone
Woodwind: flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone
Percussion: battery and mallet percussion – percussion students will learn both battery (i.e. snare drum, bass drum, etc.) and mallets (i.e. bells)
Students will receive a 30-minute group lesson during the school day each week, and will also attend a weekly full band rehearsal during the lunch/recess period.
Band students participate in the Winter and Spring Concerts, as well as other performances to be determined.
Jazz Band participants will be selected based on audition. The Jazz Band will rehearse before school from 7:45-8:30am one morning per week. Students playing piano, bass, and guitar will also be able to audition for the jazz band.
