The Junior Bulldog band is primarily our intermediate or middle school level ensemble. The primary teacher for this group is Mr. Smith, but it is a team effort with Ms. Ferris helping out in all facets of this group.

The emphasis in this group is the continued understanding of all fundamental concepts learned in fifth- and sixth-grade band and the introduction to “next level” concepts. These students will have several opportunities to showcase their individual talents and also the chance to work together as a team. We feel that our future is in these intermediate level students, so we work tirelessly to make sure that all ideas and concepts are understood and put into a practical setting for all students. This is also the first opportunity for our students to try out for the District 14 Honor Band, All-State Band and various other honor groups throughout the state of Georgia.

This group meets every day and is maintained with a full curriculum breakdown including a practice record, several class quizzes, and playing tests. This ensemble has three concerts per year including the Christmas concert, the Sweetheart Concert, and Spring Concert. In the spring, members of the Junior Bulldog Band also have the opportunity to try out for the GWA Marching Bulldog Band.

Students are asked to learn the style of marching that we use at GWA and audition for a spot on next season’s roster. For more information contact Mr. Smith about how to be a part of Concert ensemble.
