GA Band is for elementary students in grades 4 – 6. Beginning students in grades 4 & 5 are provided with individualized lessons. The total band meets four times a week from 7:50 to 8:05. There is an annual band fee charged to each band student. Rental of instruments is provided by the school or a local music store.
Band students present a Christmas and Spring concert to the West Point community. The GA Band also travels to Malcolm in the Spring for their contest selections. Many students will take solo’s, duet’s, and small group selections along with the entire band playing two selections in front of judges. This is a great opportunity for the young band members to see what it is like to be judged on their solo’s and group performances.
