To provide an inclusive instrumental music program that fosters peer camaraderie, respect for culture, and a pursuit for excellence.
Music will unite AST students and teach them to be successful adults.
The purpose of our Honor Band is to give to students that are already part of the curricular band program, a chance to participate in an ensemble, learn more about music and get more musically inspired.
Who Can Join?
Any student in the curricular music class who feels encouraged to learn more about musical instruments and will comply with the band’s handbook.
The Middle School Band is made up of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. They represent our school in various musical activities and events such as Flag Day, Peace Day, Earth Day, school assemblies, Christmas Concert, Spring Concert, Music Festivals and Graduations. Currently the band is divided into two groups – Band “A” and “B”. Band “A” is a concert band which represents the school at special events. The band “B” group belongs to an elective course which is for students who are beginning with the process of playing in a band.
