Band & Music

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.
