The band program is open to all students in grades 5-8. Our instructor, Ms. Megan Burkle, visits our school twice a week and teaches students in beginning band and advanced band. There are two yearly performances at Pius X High School. Students will be introduced to the various band instruments including: flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet/cornet, French horn, trombone and snare drum/percussion. Students participating in the program will receive group instruction during the school day.
