Band

Contact: Ryan Price

Symphonic Band
The Symphonic Band is comprised of 6th and 7th grade students and meets during period 9 on Monday and Thursday. Although the band meets during PEP period, it is still considered a class for which students receive a grade.

Wind Ensemble
The Wind Ensemble meets during period 9 on Wednesday and Friday and is comprised mainly of 8th graders. Musically advanced 7th graders are granted membership through a selective audition process.

In addition to the weekly rehearsals, all Band students are required to attend a group lesson, held once a week on a rotating schedule. Each month, students receive a new lesson schedule and it is the student's individual responsibility to attend their weekly lesson. 

Students are also required to attend a sectional during 9th period on Tuesday every 2 months. These sectionals allow students to dive into specifics of their instrument and play music written only for that instrument. Each week, a different instrument will have a sectional.

Jazz Ensemble
'Cliff Notes jazz ensemble is an extracurricular ensemble that meets after school and is open to all Briarcliff students. The specific meeting time will be determined by the ensemble members' schedules. Members are admitted into the group through an audition process. 'Cliff Notes is the featured act in Briarcliff's annual Pops Café.

There will be a brief interest meeting for students on Tuesday, December 18 at the start of period 9.
