Middle School Rock Band

This course is open to anyone interested in making great rock music together. Students may sing or play instruments, and beginning instrumentalists are welcome. Students work together to choose what music they want to perform, rehearse those pieces, and prepare for performances. This group may perform in major concerts such as Fall and Spring Family Weekend and the Winter Solstice Concert, in informal concerts at the end of each term, and in the Middle School Performance in late May. Through the year, students develop practice skills, rehearsal skills (including collaboration), and performance skills. Students who take this course are exempted from Music 7 (as 7th graders) or Music 8 (as 8th graders), though many students choose to take those courses anyway.
