8th Grade Band

EMS 8th Grade Band

The EMS 8th Grade Band is a curricular band class that meets on a daily basis. This class is open to all 8th graders who currently play or wish to learn to an instrument. Through the Roxbury School District vertical teaching system, students receive weekly group lessons and sectionals from a specialist on their instrument during the ensemble period. This ensemble seeks to further promote individual development while placing a strong emphasis on the growth of ensemble skills. The 8th Grade Band performs high quality, grade appropriate standard and contemporary literature in a variety of styles. Additionally, the 8th Grade Band travels annually to perform at a music festival outside of NJ. The EMS band program strives to promote a musical culture that is an integral part of students’ experiences at Eisenhower Middle School.
