Each Wind Ensemble member is expected to challenge themselves to become a more proficient musician on his or her instrument as the year progresses. The Wind Ensemble's goal is to perform college level compositions at a superior level. Students will receive one small group or sectional lesson per every six day cycle. Students will learn correct embouchure, breathing, posture, tone production, intonation and care and maintenance of their respective instruments. Participation at concerts, Graduation, and special performances as scheduled by the Director are a responsibility which must be met by each member of the Wind Ensemble. It is required that band students study privately and to participate in solo festivals: All-State, Regional Honor Groups and Chamber Ensembles for additional challenges. Students must also participate in one other extracurricular ensemble (Marching Band, Jazz Band, Winter Guard, Pit Orchestra).
