    Here’s a look at an average year-in-the-life for an Intermediate Concert Band student at Eckstein.

    The students who play in this band are playing concert music exclusively and will often play with their Intermediate Jazz Band colleagues. As this is a step up from Junior Concert Band, students are expected to increase their practice time and commit to an augmented playing schedule. Intermediate Concert students play at some school performances and travel to local festivals. There will be associated costs with this travel. Families will be asked to support their student’s activities through positive reinforcement, volunteering, fundraising, and at times paying for local travel and food (sack lunches are usually acceptable).

    As a member of the Intermediate Concert Band at Eckstein, your student will need to keep their school work current and in good standing. Your child will also be held as a role model to other students in the band program and must possess excellent behavior. Being an Intermediate Concert Band member does not automatically ensure Senior Jazz or Wind Ensemble entry. Mr. E will determine if a student moves up or remains at the Intermediate level.

    All band families and parents are highly encouraged to participate in bake sales, fundraising and volunteering to help make the year a success for their students. Throughout the year, parents may be asked to carpool to local events. Some of these will require admittance fees for family members. Some are free.
