The band is broken down into sections below. The following videos will introduce you to each instrument in the band.
Meet the Woodwinds
The woodwind family consists of the flute where air is blown over the "Lip plate" much like blowing air over the top of a pop bottle.
The clarinet and alto sax are single reed instruments, they require a reed to play. The reed vibrates as air passes it.
Brass instruments make a sound by buzzing your lips into the mouthpiece of the instrument.
*If you would like to play the Euphonium or Tuba, check with your band teacher, the school may have an instrument you can use!
The following instruments are also in the band, but check with your teacher to find out when and how you can start these instruments in your school music program.
