Band

In the Band department, students are exposed to a variety of artistic musical experiences. Rooted in the AZ State and National content standards, all members are provided opportunities to:

  • Connect : situate their musical experiences within their own lives, both in and out of our campus community
  • Create : generate original or re-imagined music, using both instrumental and digital platforms
  • Perform : in the artistic process, presenting our music occurs in a variety of platforms (in class, concerts, social media, and more)
  • Respond : Part of the artistic process is developing the skills to articulate specific reactions to music and providing critical feedback that encourages musical growth

Band members (brass, percussion, and woodwind) are provided experiences that help develop their specific skill sets and a broader understanding of how music is made. All students are provided timely feedback on their growth and multiple opportunities to demonstrate that refinement as they go through the program.

We place a heavy focus on the community identity of our band program (concert, jazz, marching, etc) and how each member contributes to it, but also our role in the larger Performing Arts Department and Eastmark campus.

Questions about our program can be sent to njohnston@qcusd.org
