• Concord Road Third Grade Band Program


    My co-teacher Erin Dawson and I teach Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and Snare Drum.

    Band lessons are taught in small groups of like instruments.

    Our lesson groups meet once a week for 30 minutes during lunch recess, on the same day and at the same time every week. Our students miss one lunch recess for their lesson.

    Our students learn to play an instrument, read music, work together, and prepare for performances. Our students perform in the annual Spring Concert in May.

    Our students are required to practice four days every week for 20 minutes. Parents must monitor practice sessions and sign weekly practice charts.

    Our goal for our students is to develop a love for their instrument and for making music that continues to grow through many years.

    Our program is open to interested students. We recruit our students during September and lessons begin in October.

    Our music department also offers a Strings lessons program and Third Grade Chorus.
