Eagle School Intermediate All-Star Band Performs for November Meeting

Eagle School Intermediate hosted the November Business Education Partnership Meeting on Wednesday, November 18, 2022. 

Four students from the Eagle School Intermediate Band treated members to a small 5-song soloist concert. Instruments played included a trombone, trumpet, clarinet, and flute. Members of the partnership were delighted to hear students showcase their early music mastery. Student performers included Bryce Taylor, Charles Wheatley, Chloe Yoder and Ciara Clavijo. 

Mr. Blom, Band Director, shared Music Education Theory and how that allowed students to have a more rounded early music education. The program is the only one of its kind at the intermediate-level in WV, and has many benefits including student engagement, social skill building, creativity, and the foundations of teamwork. Ms. Paige Kozak, Assistant Band Director, shared information about the fundraising efforts of the band.
