5th Grade Band
Any 5th grade student at South Newton is eligible to enroll for the 5th Grade Beginning Band. Students enrolled in this group begin their musical journey by learning how to play their respective instrument, learning how to read music and musical symbols, and learning the art of musical performance. Students in this group begin to develop the ability to perform in front of others and begin to develop more confidence in front of others.
During the school year, students will receive instruction once or twice a week, depending on each students' rotation. Students will have band during their band rotation day. Every student is grouped by instrument: woodwind, brass, and percussion. Because classes are broken up by family, there will be certain days where each groups combines to rehearse before performances.
5th Grade Beginning Band will have two performances during the school year:
The South Newton Christmas Musicale in December
The South Newton Spring Concert and Art Show in May
The Band Department full year calendar can be found here.
