Band Fundamentals Course

The Band Fundamentals class acclimates incoming band students to the SPX high school band environment and cultivates the students’ musical qualities and abilities; it is also open to students who wish to learn a new instrument as a true beginner. The class focuses on some remedial teaching and overall improvement of the students’ musical performance abilities and technique to help prepare them for participation in other band courses. Attention is primarily on developing technique through music theory skills, individual idiomatic study on instruments, and performance in group settings. Students will prepare repertoire for performances as a class.
