Preparatory Wind Ensemble
The preparatory wind ensemble is designed for developing students in elementary through middle school. Students involved in prep winds are challenged to be independent musicians, something very different from what they commonly see in their school ensembles. Prep winds members are often the only person playing their part which requires a great deal of individual responsibility and helps the student grow to become a very confident, independent musician. Students in this ensemble also face the task of performing a wide variety of music with challenging parts typically suited for advanced middle schools and high schools.
