This position encompasses Grades 6 - 12. Every student in the middle school is in the band, starting with the 6th graders in the Beginner Band, and the 7th & 8th graders in the Junior High Band. They meet only three times a week. The high school band is open to all high schoolers, with a class scheduled every day. However, for those students unable to fit high school band into their schedules, an afterschool period is also arranged.
The band director needs to be flexible with instrumentation and prepared to orchestrate or compose the music played themselves.
