In the 7th grade, Double peak students have the option of different electives other than music. However, if your student has at least a year experience on a musical instrument, then they may join Concert band, or Symphonic Winds. If your student does not have any experience on an instrument but would like to explore the world of music, then we offer Beginning Band as well to 7th graders.
It is my experience that 7th graders who join Beginning Band, often learn at an accelerated rate and are able to join one of the other Bands, Concert or Symphonic Winds during the second semester!
This means that these students often will join the higher bands in time to attend the Music Festivals, including our annual Festival at Knotts Berry Farm!
