FALLBROOK – On July 15, a select group of fifth through eighth grade band students participated in the Summer Band Fun Day at Potter Jr. High School.
The students who participated in the elementary school district’s after-school music academy last year and Potter Jr. High band students checked out instruments for the summer and were given a packet of music to practice. The packet contained differentiated levels of the same pieces so that beginning elementary band students up through the advanced Jr. high band students could play together, but play at their own level.
During the course of the Summer Band Fun Day, the students played as a full group ensemble as well as had solo and small group opportunities. It was a fun day with all levels of band students rehearsing and performing together. After the combined fifth grade through eighth grade rehearsal, the students all enjoyed a pizza party.
