The SMMS 6th Grade Beginning Band is made up of 6th Graders, who for the most part have no previous musical experience. During the first week of school we will try all the students signed up for 6th Grade Band on various instruments to see which best suits them.
7th Grade Band is a year-long class that is continuation of 6th Grade Band. This class will continue to develop students’ musical skills with even more exciting and challenging pieces of music. Students will begin to learn how to take the skills they learn and apply these concepts to their everyday band setting.
