The students in the Hialeah Middle School Magnet Band Program will learn to be fundamentally sound musicians. Magnet band students will be in both an ensemble band class as well as a music theory class. In music theory, students will have the opportunity to learn how to read and compose their own music. The basic concepts of band class are learned in music theory and applied to each student’s instrument of choice. Students will be exposed to music performance techniques such as sight reading, scale study and intonation techniques. Students will embrace a challenging repertoire that will develop their musical proficiency. They will have the opportunity to work in full ensemble settings as well as small ensemble or sectional settings, giving each student the individual attention that they need to develop as young musicians. Through district assessments, community performances and small ensemble work, students will be given the opportunity to display their talent and growth at a variety of showcases throughout the school year.
