Jones College Prep Performing Arts Course Descriptions Instrumental Music

Advanced Band I, II, III, and IV Advanced Instrumental classes are designed to give instruction to students who have had satisfactory to good success in the previous level classes and wish to move on to the next level. The students in Level I read literature between musical grade levels of 2.5 to 5. Level II literature ranges from musical grade levels 2 to 3 although much of the literature can be similar to that of the Level III students, which is designed to give instruction to advanced instrumentalists. Musical grade reading level ranges from 2.5 to 4. All performing groups (Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band) are award winners. From city, state, and university festivals, as well as international competitions, the Jones College Prep Instrumental Academy has proven itself to facilitate students’ development in all areas directly tied to academia: cognitive, psychomotor, and the affective, while providing a social setting which supports JCP’s

vision.

Prerequisites: Instructor permission following an audition or Instrumental Music I. Each successive year requires successful completion of the previous year. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 1 credit _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
