    At the Intermediate Level - Grade 6, developing basic musicianship skills continues to be a priority. Students will begin to use more articulations, perform scales and music in more difficult key signatures, and perform music at an intermediate level of difficulty (ABODA Solo repertoire, Grades 1.5 - 2). Ensemble skills will become more developed as students participate in full band settings. Students will describe concepts common to music and other disciplines, and will be involved in discussing various cultures, styles, composers, and historical periods. 6th grade band meets 3 times per week, two times with like instruments, and the third time as a full band (see the Band Schedule below).
