Concert Band: This class, designed for students ready to build on skills and knowledge previously acquired in a middle or High School (9-12) instrumental ensemble, promotes the enjoyment and appreciation of music through performance of high-quality wind and percussion literature. Rehearsals focus on development of critical listening/aural skills, individual musicianship, instrumental technique, refinement of ensemble skills, and aesthetic engagement culminating in periodic public performances.
Bailey Middle School
Chorus-Middle School (5-8): Students with little or no choral experience develop beginning vocal technique and skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and an appreciation of music from around the world and through time.
Students develop piano skills performing piano music of various styles and appropriate difficulty levels. Within a standards based curriculum students learn music notation and develop listening skills by identifying and analyzing elements and structural characteristics of music.
General Music: Students explore the essential elements of 20th- and 21st-century music in America and global cultures. Participants focus on the creation, use, and performance of music; and the modes of listening, distributing, and gaining access to music.
This concert will feature the diversity concert choir and show choir.
