Welcome to Wheeler Bands
The Band Program provides instruction for all grades. The 7th and 8th Grade classes are full ensemble classes. The 6th Grade classes are broken up into Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion Instruments. This allows for individual instruction at the beginner level. The bands perform 4 concerts throughout the year and compete in ISSMA Solo & Ensemble and ISSMA Organizational Events in the spring.
The department also offers a Jazz Band that features performers from the 7th & 8th grades. This group meets afterschool 2 times a week and performs at a few concerts throughout the year. The group is selected by audition in the fall and competes at the ISSMA Jazz Festival in March.
