Dowell Beginner Band

The Dowell beginner band consist of 6th grade students.  Anyone can be a member of the band, and no formal training or experience is necessary!  We will teach you everything you need to know!  You only need to select BAND as your #1 electve choice. Unlike other electives in middle school, you must start band in 6th grade.  The older you get, the more electives you can add on later.  We promise that BAND will be your favorite class of the day with your best friends!!!!!!

In the bginner band class, you will not have any extra rehearsals outside of the school day.  We will play our instruments in class everyday, with some "at-home" practice time expected (because that's how you get better!!!). We have concerts and performances throughout the year, with a special WATER PARK TRIP in May to the NRHO Music Festival!!!
