St. Paul's Band program is offered to students in grades 4-8. The directors for our various band levels are highly qualified musicians whose primary work is at Concordia Lutheran High School (directing and conducting a number of different instrumental groups at the high school level). They are also affiliated with other musical organizations in the community. All band students will have group and/or private instruction 3 days/week during the school day. More detailed information for those interested in our band program is available at school registration and/or the school office.

Beginning Band:

At the beginning of the school year, all 4th graders are introduced to the different instrumental opportunities offered through our band program (presentation by our band directors during the school day). With parent guidance and approval, the 4th graders may then choose if they would like to participate in beginning band and what instrument to play. This is a very fundamental level of instruction for our students, providing the necessary foundation to continue band at the intermediate and advanced band levels. NO INSTRUMENTAL EXPERIENCE or TRAINING is required. All 4th graders are invited to participate.

Intermediate Band:

This group typically consists of students in grades 5 and 6, and continues group instrumental/musical training at a noticeably higher level than beginning band. Intermediate Band equips our students to continue at the Advanced Band level in grades 7 and 8.

Advanced Band:

While this group is typically comprised of our more advanced instrumental musicians in grades 7 and 8, at the band director's discretion, some younger, more proficient musicians may be invited to participate in Advanced Band. This is a high school band preparatory program that challenges students in a wide variety of musical styles and performance levels.

All band levels participate in a Christmas and Spring Concert, as well as having the opportunity to perform at the annual fine arts festival held at Concordia Lutheran High School in Spring.
