6th Grade Beginning Band
6th Grade Beginning Band is the "last chance" to start learning a band instrument in RUSD. Students usually begin playing an instrument in 4th grade (strings) or 5th grade (band). This class, which meets every other day, is designed not for performing but for learning the basics on how to play a band instrument correctly with good technique and sound/tone production. When beginning band students enter 7th grade - they may choose to join the 7th grade concert band or go in a different direction with another elective class.
