5-6 artsGrades 5 and 6 students at Emerado choose one of two Musical Arts programs.  They may choose either Music or Band.

Music:  The Music program features singing and speech play, playing tuned and untuned instruments (such as Orff barred instruments, recorders, and percussion), movement, and music appreciation (such as listening, history, and styles of music).

Band:  The Band program features an introduction to a band instrument such as flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, trombone, or percussion.  Classes are rehearsal-based, with the majority of class time devoted to the study of band music.  Opportunities for performance include school concerts, local music festivals, and school and community events.

7-8 artsGrades 7 and 8 students at ECS have opportunity to choose the Band program.  Students who have taken Band in previous years are strongly encouraged to continue in this Arts program.

In addition to the contribution it makes to the musical education of the student, the band program fosters student creativity, self-confidence, self-discipline and cooperative learning.  Classes are rehearsal-based, with the majority of class time devoted to the study of band music.  Opportunities for performance include school concerts, local music festivals, and school and community events.
