Students in 10th and 11th grade are split in to two equal bands called Concert Band and Varsity Band. An audition is required for 9th grade students. All students in Concert and Varsity Band participate in Pep Band and combine to form the RAHS "Grad Band" which plays at graduation at the end of the year. Both bands are directed by Mr. McKnight.
Lessons will the third week of school and will take place via Zoom either during band rehearsal or during asynchronous learning times outside class. Daily practice is key to success in lessons!
