We work with students to help them succeed in all of their endeavors.While we do encourage students to expore other opportunities while participating in band, a certain level of commitment is required in order to learn an instrument. In the first year of participation in band, each student is required to practice daily in order to acheive classroom expectations and grades.Commitment is a key characteristic of Band Students.
