Junior Brass Band

In our newly proposed Junior Brass Band, students ranging from grades 4 through 7 will learn from professional musicians in both instrument-specific and full band rehearsals. The sectionals, led by River City Brass musicians, will include specific instruction in: cornet/trumpet; horn; trombone; tuba; euphonium and baritone; and percussion. The Saturday morning program will spend half of the time in sectionals and the other half in full ensemble rehearsals. To enter the JBB program, students will go through an audition process, not to select those who can and cannot enter the program, but solely to determine the best placement of each student in the program. Offering an extracurricular program to provide additional lessons in musicianship, guided practice, and ensemble performance beyond what can be offered during the school day, the JBB will serve as a segue into the region's highly talented River City Youth Brass Band
