This group is open to all 7th and 8th graders in the Cook County Middle School. This group will have two concerts per year, one in December and one in May. Students will have one individualized 20 minute lesson with the band director per week, pulled from class. Students are expected to practice at least 60 minutes a week, with the opportunity to earn extra points by practicing more. The goal of this program is to further build students' musical skills in rhythm, counting, tone quality, note accuracy, music difficulty, and to develop musical expressiveness.

People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
