Our youngest ensemble, the fifth-grade Bullpup Band, is our beginning level group. The focus of this ensemble is to teach all the beginning fundamental playing techniques, music reading, musical symbols and rhythm concepts to these students. This is a very exciting group as they are all really thrilled to begin learning how to play an instrument and how to be part of a team. Students are required to carry a notebook and their Standard of Excellence to class at all times. Class requirements also include practice records, class quizzes and, individual as well as ensemble, playing tests.
The fifth-grade Bullpup Band meets three days a week during first period. This group plays in four concerts every year including the Christmas concert, Sweetheart Concert, Grandparents Day Concert and the Spring Concert.
