Band & Orchestra Programs

Most MUSICSTAR® Band and Orchestra programs are available for students in grade 3 and up. Students use curriculum and book resources that explore general music literacy, instrumental techniques, musicianship, ensemble playing, rhythmic and melodic accuracy, aesthetics and more. As with all MUSICSTAR® programs, students work on music to be performed in showcases and student recitals. MUSICSTAR® elementary school music classes are effective feeder programs for middle and high school music programs.
