• Advanced Band, Orchestra and Choir
o Band, Orchestra and Choir meet during Learn on days 1, 3, 4, 6. Students in more than one group follow a rotating schedule developed by the music directors. Students are also expected to attend smaller sectional rehearsals that are held during "Zero Period" at 7 am, 30 minutes prior to period 1, on a rotating schedule. We added "Zero Period" to the schedule in 2002 in order to allow greater scheduling flexibility and additional rehearsal time in order to prepare more challenging music.
• Music Theory computer aided instruction
o With the addition of eight MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) computers and additional software students are able to learn music theory as well as compose and print original compositions for our performing ensembles.
• Guitar Class
o A class designed for the beginner and intermediate level players and accessible for students of all four grades in high school. The students learn to expand their understanding of strumming patterns, chords, notes on staff paper, names of the notes on the fret board. The students will increase their understanding of chord progressions and basic ear training. The students will also learn to play songs that they hear on the radio and learn to transpose those songs into other keys.
