The FPMSA Instrumental Music Program consists of four band classes and the after school Percussion Ensemble & Drumline. Students can start band instruments in 4th grade. Beginning instrumental music students learn fundamentals of technique, rhythm, note-reading and performance etiquette. As students continue in the program, they build these fundamentals and explore a wider variety of musical styles and genres. All instrumental music students have opportunities to perform throughout the year during on-campus shows. Middle school students have additional off-campus prospects for performing, including All-State band, All-County band, and Solo & Ensemble Music Performance Assessments.
