Welcome to Junior Concert Band! This is the elective ensemble in Class 6 and 7 and we meet on Fridays for an hour at 11:45am during term time. This group is for all wind and brass players, driven along by a groovy rhythm section consisting of percussion, keys and bass.
A key learning point in Junior Concert Band is self management. Therefore, students are expected to:
- be on time,
- bring all equipment necessary for the rehearsal (instruments, sheet music, pencil) and ensure it is in good condition,
- experience success through practising the sheet music consistently prior to the rehearsal, working on it with their instrumental teacher and listening to any recordings,
- enjoy orderly rehearsal technique by not interrupting the coach, putting hands up and being tuned and ready to play as quickly as possible,
- listening and observing sound, movement and gesture from the coach and other players to enable a cohesive ensemble sound.
