We are excited to have band available at Washington School for the 5th and 6th graders. Band students have the opportunity to learn some of the basic instruments, including flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, baritone, French horn, trombone, snare drum and bass drum. They experience the satisfaction of making music and beginning to master notes and rhythms. In band, students can also gain friendships with fellow band students and learn to appreciate the unique sounds that come from working together when playing a song. These skills, along with many others, make band a valued opportunity here at Washington. We look forward to hearing these great musicians as they grow and master their musical skills.
