8th Grade Band
Instructor: Bill Large
The 8th grade band is the varsity group of the junior high band program and the step before high school, making it a vital time in a band student's career. Pep rally songs dominate the fall season which are mostly high school level, preparing them for difficulty of the next year's music. While much of the music was introduced in 7th grade, the students must take more active role in 8th grade and become the leaders of the pep rally ensemble. More difficult music is also played in the holiday season. UIL contest for 8th grade is an entire grade more difficult than 7th grade and the students must perform at a high level in order to compete with bands from other schools. All students will need to dress in BLACK AND WHITE for this event. Absolutely no blue jeans or shorts. See the calendar/events page for performance dates and locations. By the end of the year, the 8th grade band is only concentrating on preparing for high school by marching, playing music for high school fall season, and playing for graduation with the high school group.
