Intro to Music is a daily, semester long class, exploring music through instrumental performance. The class is part of an Introduction to Music and Technology wheel of elective classes for 7th graders. Students choose to play an instrument after trying all the instruments. They receive weekly small group instruction from one of our music coaches: Dick Prato, Meredith Sedgwick and Paul Marcantonio. By the end of the semester, they will have completed about 2/3 of our 1st year band method book and have gained the proficiency to play grade 1 band literature. Students have the option to play in a concert with the other instrumental music groups.
