Concert Band is open to all students of Woodson High School and will focus on basic skills such as tone production, rhythm, scales and sight-reading. Students with no previous band experience may start an instrument but only at the discretion of the director. Instrument choice will be decided by the director taking into consideration the appropriateness of the instrument for the physical makeup of the student and the instrumentation needs of the program. This is also a great class for those students interested in switching instruments. Concert may or may not be a performing group in and of itself depending upon the instrumentation enrolled in the class for that year. If not, the first semester will be spent on basic skills and second semester we will provide performance opportunities for those students who are maintaining a high level of musical achievement. Members of this group perform in Winter and Spring Concerts and may participate in marching band.
