Band

Band:  6th, 7th, and 8th Grade

Band is a performance based class.  This means you will learn to play an instrument alone and in a group setting

for multiple required concerts/performances during the school year.  We have four ensembles in the Mt. Juliet Middle School Band program.  The beginning band, concert band, advanced band, and jazz band.  The 6th grade band is considered beginning band and this ensemble focuses on teaching students to start on an instrument of their choice.  There are two different in-school 7th and 8th grade ensembles.  We have our advanced band, which is an auditioned group.  This group plays more advanced music and has extra rehearsals and performance opportunities.  The 7th and 8th grade students who do not audition for advanced band make up our concert band.  We also have a jazz band that is made up of 7th and 8th graders and meets once a week after school.  The jazz band plays at all concerts and has various other performances.   NOTE:  This is a year-long class, which may prohibit the student from taking other exploratory classes due to scheduling.
