About 4th Grade Band 4th Grade band allows students the opportunity to learn a concert band instrument. Students have class with other students who play the same instrument, allowing for an intimate, hands on approach. Band is considered a special, and as such, students who participate in band are pulled from class once a week to have their sectional lesson. Lessons will increase to twice a week closer to our Winter and Spring Fine Arts Festivals, so that we are able to rehearse as a full ensemble before our concert.
"Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong"- Roger Gracie
