What course codes do I need for next year???
Band 1-6 (I will make sure you are put in the appropriate level!) is our main class. It meets before school (zero period) every day from 7:35-8:20 am.
Marching Band: This is a mandatory addition to Band. All band and colorguard members are in marching band. It meets Mondays/Thursdays from 3:15-5:15 pm. It also includes most football games, 2-4 other performances of our show, and the Ocala Christmas Parade. This ensemble will have fees of $150 (information on financial aid to come).
Instrumental Ensemble 1-4: This is percussion class during the school day. If you can fit it into your schedule, I expect you to be in this class. We will be able to focus on fundamentals outside of the concert band setting, which will greatly improve our skill level! All percussionists will be required to purchase equipment for next year.
Jazz Ensemble 1-4: Jazz band during the day! If you can't make this work, fear not! We will also practice after school on Wednesdays, and maybe one other day of the week, from 3-4:30.
Chorus 1-6: Vocal Ensemble, new and improved! If you took chorus in middle school, you will be able to earn honors credit by staying in chorus for 4 years! All levels welcome - if you enjoy singing, we will have a great time!
Welcome to the music department!
