Band at NWC is full of fun and memories that will last a lifetime. NWC Elementary School offers 4th and 5th grade beginning band. The Middle School offers three grade level specific band classes. Finally, our High School provides one band that does it all. The high school advanced band performs as the Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Crusader Pep Band. All bands get to participate in at least one major community event every year. Events we regularly participate with are the: Jr. Lilac Parade, Gathering of the Bands, Stillwater Music Festival, and Music in the Parks. We feel that music education is an essential part of a will balanced education. Study after study show that students in band average about 12 points higher in IQ and other standardized tests, than their nonmusical peers. Provide your child a well balanced education that includes music. Band will help build discipline, character, and memories that will last a lifetime.
It is the goal of NWC Band to foster a new “Culture of Music” that will enhance scholastics excellence. NWC is building a strong band program through a combination of classroom and technology based venues. Classroom practice is important for rehearsing and polishing a musical piece for a concert or performance. Also, it is essential for building camaraderie and teamwork amongst students. To help prepare students for the classroom rehearsal, NWC has implemented SmartMusic™ as its primary assessment tool for band. The combination of structured practice time at home, accompanied by a guided rehearsal in class, along with strong parental involvement, provide the framework for a strong band program.
