Band is a wonderful opportunity for you. If you aren't into sports then music is always an option! You will have so much fun in band with our band director Mr. Von Ahsen. We have concert band, marching band, solo contests, several opportunities for getting into honor bands and a really fun trip to Adventureland. In my opinion, band is much better when you are in 7th and 8th grade band. I think this because, you get to participate in more honor bands and the trip to Adventureland is for 7th and 8th graders only.

When is band?

We have band every other day on A days. We practice for 45 minutes each rehearsal. You are required to practice on your own time too.

Some of our wonderful band players:

Practice! Practice! Practice!

Mr. Von Ahsen likes it if we practice 20 minutes a day. You don't even have to practice every day. You can practice like five times a week if that's what you want. As long as you are practicing a little bit per week at least. Practice for sure effects how you play in band. If you practice you are sure to do better!
