(Grades 9-12) Students enrolled in Band I-IV will advance their study of instrumental music through performance in a variety of settings. Emphasis is placed on moving beyond the notes and rhythms and addressing musical elements such as style, balance, blend, intonation, dynamics, expression, tonality, form, stage presence, and concert etiquette. Attention will be given to major and minor scales and arpeggios. Students will gain exposure to music from a variety of styles and historical periods by performing in ensembles such as marching band, concert band, jazz band, and pep band. The Lowellville High School Band has a very active performance schedule.
