Fenwick Instrumental Program Goals

The Fenwick Instrumental Program is a positive and supportive community. Students have the opportunity to develop their personal and musical skills through a wide range of high quality experiences with the aim that they will develop a lifelong enjoyment of music.  Students participating in the Fenwick High School’s instrumental ensembles will be able to:
  • Perform large ensemble, chamber ensemble, and solo repertoire at their highest individual and group potential.
  • Demonstrate musical and technical prowess on their instrument.
  • Discuss cultural and historical context for the music they perform.
  • Analyze and evaluate musical performances given by themselves and others.
  • Compose, notate, arrange, and improvise music within specified guidelines.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of basic music theory.
  • Demonstrate effective peer leadership.

Fenwick Instrumental Program offers the following courses: Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Percussion Ensemble I & II, and Jazz Band. The Bands combine to create the Fenwick Pep Band that plays at home varsity football games, basketball games, other sports events, and pep rallies.
