Eight Grade Band Information

  • Instructors: David Bentley, Carol Krell

    Practice Sheet | Practice Policy

    The eighth grade band is the culmination band experience for students at IMS, and springboard to the stellar high school band program. Class structure is similar to the seventh grade band. Curriculum shifts to include a greater emphasis on performance band works, and less on technique books. Enrichment opportunities for small ensemble playing are available for motivated students. Uniforms will be a maroon Islander Band collared polo shirt, black colored dress pants (no jeans please), black or dark brown dress shoes with corresponding colored socks. Students will have periodic graded playing tests, as well as required practice records, provided in class. Please continue to refer to this website for periodic updates of upcoming student requirements and performances. A course guide will be provided to students at the beginning of school and to parents at curriculum night. Please note the dates of performances for the year, listed on this site. Participation at all concerts is required, and a significantly weighted and important part of each student’s grade.
