7th Grade Lessons
Lessons are an essential part of the Sun Prairie Band Program and provides students with a curriculum that is entirely unique from the large ensemble. During lessons, students work on the specific skills that they will need to be successful on their specific instrument in a small-group setting.
Unlike 6th grade, lessons for students in 7th grade take place during their study hall or band periods only. Students lesson schedule rotates based on their study hall period each week, generally between Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. This allows students to maintain a relatively stable schedule.
If you or your student has a question about his/her lesson schedule, please contact Mrs. Sederquist. Students are also encouraged to check Google Drive for their lesson schedule and to communicate any conflicts and concerns ASAP.
About 7th Grade Band at Prairie View
Prairie View Middle School currently has two 7th grade bands that meet for 44 minutes every day. Students also receive small group instruction once a week through the Band Lesson Program. At Prairie View, we strive to provide students with a comprehensive musical foundation on their instrument; one that will pave the way to a successful and well-rounded future as a Sun Prairie Band Member. (we also have a great deal of FUN doing so!) Sun Prairie has a long standing rich tradition of excellent bands.
Seventh graders at Prairie View Middle School work toward 6 performances during the school year including the district-wide Band-O-Rama concert and the Memorial Day Parade in downtown Sun Prairie. Additionally, students also have the option to participate in several additional performances including Sun Prairie Middle Level Honor Band, a tour of our feeder elementary schools, a middle school band festival at UW Whitewater, Tuba Christmas, Solo & Ensemble, High School Epoch Sound (pep-band) Night, and the district-wide Swing Into Spring Jazz Extravaganza. Students are eligible to audition for the State Middle Level Honors Band, as well as other performing experiences.
