Students receive 30 minute group lessons once per week throughout the school year. Group times rotate each week so that students do not regularly miss the same academic subject. In fact, the students only miss the same portion of class once every 10 weeks! Schedules can be found on the band website, and class rosters and schedules are posted both in your child’s classroom, and outside of the band room. It is each student's responsibility to bring his or her instrument, band folder, and method book to the band room for their scheduled band lesson.

Every year the band performs a Winter and Spring concert for parents and an in-school Winter and Spring concert for students and teachers. As we approach the dates for these concerts, students will be required to attend several full-band rehearsals before school in the Heritage gym. There will also be various opportunities for students to perform as part of small chamber ensembles, and to perform as a member of the jazz band.
