TBC is excited to announce its Beginning Band program tailored for elementary school students. The program will begin on Monday June 17th and end on Wednesday July 31 with rehearsals on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM at First United Methodist Church at 2950 Washington Boulevard, Fremont, CA 94539. We are excited to introduce our head instructor, Amberle Mitchell, the DDirector of Bands at Centerville Junior High School and Washington High School in Fremont, CA. These weeks of practice will culminate in a concert where students can showcase their new skills!
The program's structure is to ensure maximum participation for beginners. Once a week, we will do sectionals with junior high and high school volunteers helping students focus on their instrument. The other day will be a full group ensemble rehearsal. Students will be using the Standards of Excellence Book 1 and are recommended to rent instruments from Allegro Music or C&L Music based in Fremont. Please do not buy instruments off Ebay or online without speaking with instructors first. There will be a mandatory instrument trial session on Saturday June 1st, time TBD, for all new students who don't already play an instrument.
Our beginning band program has a flexible attendance program, but please inform us of absences in advance. This program is FREE for all, but donations are highly encouraged in order to help us keep this program available to students. We hope to see you there, either as a participant or as a volunteer!
