Instrumental Music (Band)
Click here for the Winter/Spring 2016-2017 Band Schedule
In addition to Music as part of our curriculum, students in Grades 3-8 may also participate in Instrumental Music (Band). Being involved in a school band program helps to foster a lifelong appreciation of music and group-playing encourages unity and a spirit of cooperation.
Instrumental Music is taught every Thursday. For Grades 3-5, the class period rotates so that students don’t miss the same academic class each week; it will be held this year on Thursdays during periods 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9. For Grades 6-8, Band occurs during the 10th Period Exploratory, and students must sign up for a year-long commitment to the Middle School Band.
Julie Harris directs our Band program. She is a certified music instructor with degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and Duquesne University. Please feel free to contact her at 412-521-7911 with any questions.
