This semester-long course is designed for students who desire to learn an instrument, but have not been permitted the opportunity to receive formal instruction. Following a brief unit on music theory fundamentals, students will be given individual and group instruction on their instrument culminating in a studio performance at the end of the semester. Secondary topics include musical composition and arranging for each student’s selected instrument. Instruments provided include: bass clarinet, clarinet, concert percussion, drumline percussion, flute, guitars (acoustic and electric), hand percussion, piano, saxophone, trap set (drum set), trumpets, tuba, violin, and voice. Students who desire instruction on instruments not listed will need to acquire them for this class. Student-provided items include: mouth pieces and reeds for all wind instruments, picks, and sticks/mallets. Tutoring and advanced private instruction is available for interested and capable students.
