Band (5th - 8th)

God has blessed us with the gift of music and at OSLS, we have the opportunity to make music with our voices and our instruments!

The OSLS Band program starts beginners in the 5th Grade. Students will learn to make a quality tone on woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. With lots of hard work and practice, they will also learn to read notes and rhythms for their instruments. The students in beginning band have the opportunity to make their first music in unison and move to more advanced music. Beginning Band students play for Christmas and Spring performances.

The Jr. High Band meets twice a week during school.  Students must have at least one year of experience in order to play in the Jr. High Band. They play music that has individual parts for their section. Not only do they learn music for the Christmas season and Spring performance, but they also learn Pep Band music to play at basketball games!
