9th Grade Bands

Eden Prairie High School has two freshman bands. They perform in a concert once per term. Members are registered in the required course. A wide variety of music literature will be studied and performed in a major concert each term. The fundamentals of basic musicianship will be emphasized in each class. Playoff pep band performances will occur during terms 1, 2, and 3 for all football, soccer, basketball, and hockey teams that reach Region finals and beyond. All band members are encouraged to take lessons to develop personal music understanding, appreciation, playing techniques, and musicianship; however, lessons may also be provided by the school instructor. This class will meet daily for 45 minutes. Students must enroll for a minimum of one semester (two consecutive terms); although a one-year commitment is recommended.
