2. Band, Jazz Ensemble, Orchestra, Women’s Chorale, Blue Notes, Bare Voices, and Concert Choir require that the student has had previous/ appropriate playing or singing experience.
3. There will be a $50 fee assessed for each band, choir, and orchestra class the student is enrolled in.

College-Bound Students

College-bound students who aspire to study in a field related to music are recommended to take four full years of music.

Recommendation For Placement

1. Recommendation for placement in any course is based on effort, motivation, and performance. Each instructor monitors these three aspects and considers them in making a recommendation of placement for the student for the following year.
2. Any questions regarding the appropriateness of your experience level should be directed to the music instructor involved.
