8th Band

The 8th Grade Band is for students with two years of band experience. Students will continue to study the fundamentals of music. Each student will be introduced to more advanced techniques for instrumental maintenance and performance. Students will have the opportunity to perform solos for their class, perform in concerts, and travel to regional band festival events. Advanced students will have the opportunity to audition for the South Central All-District Band, CMS Middle School Honors Band, and Solo and Ensemble events. Participation in fundraising events is highly encouraged as the proceeds help all members of the band. Students are encouraged to take private instrumental lessons.
