Introducing the Instruments of the Band
Your School has a terrific band! Now your child has a chance to be part of the fun, playing for school events, festivals, and more. Lessons take place in small groups during the school day following and educationally sound, sequential music curriculum.
The flute is one of the higer pitched instruments of the woodwind family. It has a beautiful sound that can be light and happy or quiet and calm.
The clarinet is a popular woodwind instrument. It can play both high and low notes and plays a wide range of music from classical to jazz. A band generally has more clarinets than any other instrument.
Depending on the player, the saxophone can sound mellow or strong. It does everything from pop to big band to jazz but also has its place in classical music.
The trumpet plays high brassy notes. An optional mute can make the trumpet sound completely different. Many great jazz artists have been trumpet players.
The trombone has the greatest note range out of all the brass becuase of its slide. The 'bone' is an essential part of any big band group.
Percussion (Snare Drum Kit)
Percussionists don't just play the drums. There are many kinds of percussion instruments, including the cymbals, snare drum, timpani and bass drum -- and you should learn to play them all.
