This group is the main ensemble of the Matherville Intermediate School Bands. The Beginning Band begins rehearsals near the beginning of the fall semester and continues into the spring. Beginning Band is a fun way for students to express themselves musically while learning their instrument, leadership, teamwork, passion, responsibility, pride, and good work ethics in a safe band community. Students learn about their instruments in a performance based class focused on music education and playing their instruments everyday. Participation in out of school performances and concerts is required and reflected in the student's band grade. Dates of these events will be given with plenty of notice. This ensemble puts on 2 concerts each year (Holiday Concert and Spring Concert). The Beginning Band is the first opportunity for 6th grade students to participate in band.
