That Altus Junior High Band

Altus Junior High Band classes are designed to provide students with an enriching and diverse instrumental music education by performing music of various genres and time periods. All classes will perform two concerts during the year to demonstrate their learning of such music. The main focus of these courses is to foster and promote music growth through the playing on an instrument by the student, at an appropriate level of difficulty. As the band woks as a team, group effort and cooperation are necessary for a successful program. Band is a skilled effort in which each student is expected to show technical and musical growth throughout the course. All classes in the Altus Junior High Band program utilize the Oklahoma Performance Standards for Band to teach and improve student understanding and performance in music.
