SYMPHONIC BAND



The Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band are the two curricular bands at West. Each meets one period per day and is a full credited course. Wind and Percussion instruments make up these organizations. The group does not include piano, string or electronic instruments, however piano/keyboard may be used to play bass parts in the ensemble.  Electric Bass may also be added but the student must be able to read music!

SYMPHONIC BAND
This class is open to any student in grades 9-12 that plays a wind or percussion instrument and NO AUDITION IS REQUIRED! Most incoming 9th grade students will schedule this course. The band performs a variety of concert band literature and combines with the Wind Ensemble throughout the year, especially for the Spring Trip/Festival each year. The band performs at the four school concerts each year. Basic instrumental techniques, designed to develop the overall musicianship of the student, are explored in this class. It is hoped that students will eventually audition for Wind Ensemble, although it is not required.
