7th Grade Band is a year-long class that is continuation of 6th Grade Band.  This class will continue to develop students’ musical skills with even more exciting and challenging pieces of music. Students will begin to learn how to take the skills they learn and apply these concepts to their everyday band setting. This band will perform in at least two concerts throughout the school year.


 The following objectives are held: 

  • To give students the experience of performing in an ensemble that requires the self discipline and group discipline that will be beneficial in academic life, and in the work force after formal education is completed.
  • To develop an appreciation and love of many varieties of music through utilizing correct performance and behavioral habits.
  • To foster a sense of pride in being a student musician at George Wythe High School.
  • To develop an understanding of music’s important role in the enrichment of the human spirit.
