Band with Mr. Claussen
The Falcon Ridge Middle School Instrumental Music Program is a year-long performance course. Our band curriculum provides large group (band rehearsal) and small group (lessons) instruction. Students perform two concerts each year and have the opportunity to participate in small ensembles. I teach both of the 8th grade bands and the 7 Blue band that meets 2nd period on Gold days. Additionally, your child will have me or one of the other band instructors for their small group lessons.
I encourage you to sign up to receive the weekly FRMS Band email. To enroll, please click HERE. Follow the easy directions and you will receive an email from the FRMS Band department most Fridays. It is a great way to stay informed of lesson cycle days, audition tips, band activities, concert information and much more. Please take a few minutes to read through the FRMS Band Handbook (attached below as a PDF file) to review band policies and procedures. A paper copy of the handbook will be sent home with 7th and 8th grade band students who are new to Falcon Ridge.
