THE ENSEMBLES

The Park View Middle School Band Program prides itself on providing a comprehensive instrumental music education. 

 

Curricular Program

7th Grade Band and Percussion Ensemble

 

7th grade band builds on the fundamental skills developed by students in the elementary band program. In this course, students rehearse separately as winds (woodwinds/brass) and percussion. This approach allows instruction to be specifically tailored to each section's unique needs to best develop individual and ensemble musicianship. 

Students are required to have participated in Elementary Band to join in 7th grade and will play the instrument they performed on during their 6th grade year. Regular practice is an expectation of students. 

7th Grade Band Members perform in three concerts each year and have the opportunity to audition for the PVMS Jazz Ensemble, Blue2 Winds & Percussion, and local/state honor bands.
