PRELUDE WINDS & BRASS
DIRECTED BY:  SUSAN CARPENTER

SATURDAYS, 10:45AM - 11:45AM
COLLEGE OF THE CANYONS

Prelude Winds & Brass is our entry-level orchestral ensemble for musicians with one year of experience playing a wind, reed or brass instrument. Students will rehearse in an orchestral setting, learning how to play with an awareness of other musicians and their role of melody or harmony within the piece.

Prelude Winds & Brass Musicians will be exposed to an assortment of repertoire to improve their ability to read notes, identify correct rhythmic values, dynamics and articulation markings.

Students will attend weekly rehearsals and participate in an end-of-semester concert to build their musical efficacy, self-worth and accomplishment.

This class will help to prepare students for school music success and auditioning for SCVYO Orchestra.
