HONORS BANDS (AN Opportunity!)
For the student who is exceptionally motivated, there are additional performance opportunities. Preparation might necessitate after school coaching.
All South Jersey Band is by audition only. Auditions are held the last weekend in January, but the student will start to prepare a solo piece, scales and sight-reading skills as soon as possible. If chosen, the student would participate with the very best young musicians South Jersey has to offer. I highly recommend this experience!! Private lessons help with preparation.

Olympic Conference Honors Band is similar to All South Jersey with one exception: there is no solo piece requirement. These auditions are in February. If selected, the student will be honored as one of the best musicians within our Athletic Conference. Students may choose to audition for both or just one of the bands. It is a great experience!

Names of solo pieces and a list of requirements can be found on the informational board in the hallway near the Band Room.
