(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

The goals of this course are to develop skills in the performance of instrumental music. The class will enhance sight-reading skills, sensitivity to tone and ensemble blending, and rhythmic articulation. The repertoire of the ensembles includes the standard literature from the 19th and 20th centuries written for both marching band and concert band. Students are given seating assignments throughout each section of the ensemble according to their ability and experience. Students will be assessed by periodic performance evaluations. The course is designed for students who have had only modest experience in instrumental music but who have had previous instruction in their instruments. No audition is necessary, although basic music literacy is required.
