In addition to block period classes, we also offer music program Encore classes to seventh and eighth grade music students opposite their Language Arts Workshop. These groups are Select Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Sinfonia. Students must take band, orchestra, or choir as an elective to participate in our Encore classes. These classes are shorter in duration and explore more advanced styles of music than the block period classes; therefore students need to have the foundation of musicianship taught in our electives to be successful.
