Vivace (Beginner Band)
This group is intended for those with little or no experience. The focus will be on getting a good sound from the instrument, an introduction to reading music and following a conductor. We use a method book - The Standard of Excellence by Bruce Pearson as well as short music pieces appropriate to the level of the group. .
There is a minimum requirement of 8 people to form this Band. Currently 5 people have registered and are waiting for the remaining three.
Prospective band members have a two week grace period at no charge in which to decide whether they want to pursue the full 12 week session. If after the 2 weeks the decision is to continue the full fee is payable on the third week.
By the end of the first two sessions members will play at Grade 0.5 to 1.0 level.
