Eliot School Band Program
Mondays (sectionals) and Wednesdays (whole group) from 3:30 - 4:30pm
Grades/Age: Grades 4 - 6
Welcome to the Eliot Band Program! This program will introduce instruments to new band students of the Eliot School. EBP musicians will develop fundamental techniques on their instruments through group lessons and side-by-side instruction. On Mondays, students will divide into instrument groups for a 60-minute group lesson led by NEMPAC Teaching Artists. After Thanksgiving, students will add on Wednesday ensemble rehearsals, meeting with the Band Director to combine their individual work into an ensemble setting. Additionally, students will have two to three performances at the end of the year – the annual Perform-a-thon in April, the BPS Citywide Arts Festival, and the Eliot Music Concert in June!
