Barton Band
Wind Ensemble 2012-2013

Barton offers four bands for students 4th grade and up:

  • Beginner Band: Offered to students in 4th grade.
  • Concert Band (Intermediate): Offered to students in grades 5 & 6. Students must have at least 1 year experience on their instruments.
  • Wind Ensemble (Advanced): For grades 7 & 8. Students must have at least 2 years experience on their instruments.
  • Jazz Band: For students interested in playing jazz and learning the fundamentals of improvising. Students need to be proficient on their instruments and good note readers. Students who play the clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, guitar, piano, bass and drum set are needed.

Beginner Band (and strings) demonstrations and instrument tryouts are held the first few weeks of school.

Large group rehearsals are held every Wednesday in the commons during the student's specialist time, except for Jazz Band, which is held during the last hour of the day, in the band room.
