Students in grades 5-8 are eligible to participate in the school’s Band program. Our instructor is Mrs. Ellen Miller from Lutheran High School South. A second teacher from Lutheran South comes as well to help teach the band students, allowing for more personalized attention.
Students in the 5th grade have the opportunity to try their three favorite instruments as part of the Beginner Band program to help them decide if they would like to sign up. Students in their second year of playing, 6th grade, are in the Intermediate Band. Students in their 3rd and 4th years of playing are in the Advanced Band.
Band meets twice a week during the school day and students have opportunities to perform during Lutheran Schools Week and at two combined band concerts at Lutheran South High School.
Band students in 7th and 8th grade may be invited to participate in the Junior Winds Select Honor Band which meets at Lutheran South on Monday evenings.
An annual Band fee is assessed to each student participating in the program. The fee is determined by the assessment from the Lutheran High School Association. Students who do not own their own instrument may rent one from a music store.
