Cadet Band

 #8200 Cadet Band 

Grades 9-10 / Full year course - 2.0 credits

Prerequisites:  Middle School Band  


Cadet Band is the entry level offering into the York High School Band Program. All entering freshman band students are assigned to this band, unless audition warrants alternative placement. This course is designed for students with previous playing experience through middle school level on brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments. Students will focus on developing their instrumental performance skills, pitch/rhythmic accuracy, tone quality/production, to facilitate higher levels of musical expression in a large performing musical ensemble. Members of the Cadet Band will participate in a solo performance festival in January and perform in no less than four formal concerts throughout the year. Members of this ensemble are encouraged to participate in the York Pep Band.
