Description: Prerequisites: Foundations of Music and either Music Performance Ensemble or Guitar & Bass Ensemble, or teacher approval (based on assessment). This elective is designed for experienced, advanced music students interested in playing music in a band setting. House Band is a “show band,” and as such, rehearses, polishes, and performs cover versions of contemporary and modern songs (occasionally including originals). Class meetings are generally for group rehearsal, so students are required to practice their individual parts outside of class time. Students will be expected to participate in a few performances both on and off campus (approximately two per semester), representing the vibrant spirit of our school community. Additionally, some amount of recording may be part of students’ work. Prospective new members are required to AUDITION, and students will be selected based on a variety of factors including reliability, skill level, experience, and ability to collaborate.
