Middle/Jr/Sr High Band Question

Post by Kim » Thu Mar 18, 2004 1:34 pm

I was wondering if some of you could
answer a couple of questions for me. Are you in a Middle/Jr High Band? How many
students are in your school band? How many band directors/teachers do you have ?
How often do you have school lessons ? Are you pulled out of another class for
lessons ? Thanks, Kim

Thanks for the responses. We are going
through some changes here and we have been surveying schools in our conference
and it got me curious as to how schools in other states are doing things. Kim

---------------- [/quote] Yes, i'm in jh. A whole lot of kids are taking band
class, but only 40 something are in the Symphonic Wind Emsemble. Two teachers
and one concert master who's in 8th grade. Um...i have band class twice a week,
and after school rehearsal twice a week. I practice at lunch and in the mornings
before school everyday. Yes, but only right before a concert usually. Sometimes,
if the dance teacher isnt here (which is pretty often), I can get the substitute
to let me go to band by myself.

similar emotions are most suitably expressed by the flute." --Aristotle,
