About Concert Band

In this weekly class, the YAA Concert band will try our different instruments and play together in an introductory band prepping them for ensemble opportunities within their schools such as concert bands, jazz bands, and more. They will get an introduction to all the instrument families (woodwinds, brass, and percussion) and will choose one instrument to learn & focus on for the year.
