HMS 7th and 8th Grade Band

The 7th and 8th Grade Concert Band is a full year class and is open to students in the 7th and 8th grade that have had at least one year of previous instruction on wind and/or percussion instruments. It consists of traditional band instrumentation and provides reinforcement in basic instrumental skills such as proper embouchure, hand position, posture, listening and breathing skills, as well as an emphasis on the fundamental concepts of rhythm, tone production, ensemble balance and blend, and overall ensemble sonority. The Concert Band is divided by grade level into two separate classes, but performs as one ensemble during performances. The 7th and 8th Grade classes meet every school day and perform several concerts each year. Weekly practice is expected. Private study is encouraged to help students progress to the next level. Membership is at the discretion of the director and school administration.
