Eagle School Band

  • The Eagle School Band is a performing ensemble consisting of wind instruments and percussion. The group meets two times a week for a full ensemble rehearsal and students must also attend a weekly group lesson. Goals of the band program are to allow students to develop their musicianship and music literacy through applying concepts on an instrument.

     

    Instrument Options include:

    Flute

    Clarinet

    Saxophone

    Trumpet

    Trombone

    Euphonium/Tuba

    Note: Percussion/Drums will be volunteers for each piece of music on the performance

     

    Options for Obtaining an Instrument:

    1. Ask around: often relatives, neighbors, friends, coworkers, etc. have instruments they are willing to lend or give away. 
    2. Rent: The Guitar Room, Ellsworth Music Supply, Music and Arts
    3.  Purchase: If planning on purchasing a used instrument please consult me first for help. If planning on purchasing online please consult my recommendations on the instrument page. Several low-cost instruments on places like Amazon are very low quality, wear down very quickly, and cost more in the long run to maintain functionality.
    4. Rent from school: A very limited number of school instruments are available if the other options are not possible.

Band Rehearsal/Lesson Schedule

  • Please Note: Students Must attend a band rehearsal and a lesson each week.

    Failure to attend Two Lessons in a row or Four total lessons without attending a make-up lesson will result in removal from the band program. 

    Students may make-up lessons during scheduled make-up times or by joining another lesson of the same instrument.(this second option must be preapproved)

     

    Lesson schedule may change depending on number of students per instrument
