7th Grade Band

In 7th grade band, students continue to reinforce the basic skills learned in 6th grade. Students review syncopation and dotted quarter notes, and learn about sixteenth notes, eighth/sixteenth combinations, and triplets. Students will continue to expand their range on their instruments as well by learning new notes and becoming comfortable in the keys of Bb, Eb, Ab, F, and C major. 7th graders begin working in different time signatures such as cut-time, 3/8 and 6/8 time.
