The Beginner Band is the first step in the journey as a member of the Lucyle Collins Middle School Band. Students in the Beginner Band will enjoy instrument specific classes where they can learn to play their chosen instrument in a small-group setting. Students will learn how to properly assemble, hold, and play their instrument in a fun and progressive course designed to teach all of the skills necessary to perform concerts for your family and friends!
The Beginner Band will perform several concerts throughout the first year, as well as travel to a music festival to compete against bands from around the state. The Beginner Band is primarily made up of 6th grade students, but special consideration can be made on a case-by-case basis for older students interested in joining band.
Private lessons are available and are recommended by the directors.
The beginner band has many best in class trophies from several music festivals and has one outstanding class awards.
