1 Lakeview Middle School Band Beginning Band Instrument Selection Guide Choosing an instrument to learn how to play is an exciting first step to learning music! This guide will explain how the instrument selection process works, explains each beginning band instrument, and explains step-up instruments. Instrument Selection Process In band, students learn how to play one instrument for an entire school year. Beginning band instruments include flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, tuba, and percussion. It is important to understand that there are a set number of students selected to play each instrument depending on the size of the band. This will ensure an enjoyable musical experience for everyone. The band director will try to accommodate the requests of the parent or student. However, spots for popular instruments will be on a first-come-first-serve* basis. If the student is trying out in class and wants to play a popular instrument that still has spots available, they will need to keep a second and third choice in mind if they are not selected via lottery*. A student may be convinced that they are supposed to play a certain instrument, but when they go to try it they are unable to produce a desirable sound. The band director or professional musician will help the student decide which instrument they think they will be the most successful on. Please read some of the physical characteristics recommended for each instrument. First-come-first serve Students and parents who attended early instrument selection night that is usually held at the end of the previous school year. These students are guaranteed a spot on the instrument that they chose, unless the popular instruments fill up on that night. They will then move on to the lottery system. Lottery If too many students are interested in an instrument and are successful in creating a sound, then their names will go into a lottery. The names that are selected will be assigned that instrument. The names that were not selected will be assigned their second choice. Students who are interested in more than one popular instrument may have to go through a second lottery system!

2 Beginning Band Instruments Flute The flute is the smallest of the beginner instruments. It is a very popular selection each year, but only a small portion of those wishing to play flute will be selected. Physical Characteristics: Flute players should have a slight frown to the upper lip with NO tear drop shape in the middle. Flute tones are produced by being able to focus an extremely small air stream to an exact location on the tone hole. The tear-drop-shaped lip will make it difficult to direct the air so precisely. Flute players should also have agile fingers for moving this multi-keyed instrument through a fast musical passage. Students with extreme overbites (receded jaw) should avoid choosing flute as this makes it difficult to produce quality sounds. Flexible lower lip desirable. Other Considerations: Students with double-jointed fingers should avoid selecting flute as this condition can cause lack of agility in the fingers. Braces ok. Medium maintenance instrument. FLUTE PERSONALITY: Careful & Studious Clarinet The clarinet uses a single reed and a mouthpiece to produce the sound. Clarinet is a popular instrument each year and many students will get the opportunity to play. Physical Characteristics: One necessity of clarinet tone production is the ability to make the chin flat. Other Considerations: Students who have difficulty remembering a series of instructions should avoid playing clarinet. Clarinet players are also responsible for maintaining a working stock of 4-6 quality reeds. A box of 10 reeds costs around $25.00 and can last (with proper care) up to 4 months. Some orthodontics is okay. High maintenance instrument CLARINET PERSONALITY: Diligent & Focused Trumpet The cornet/trumpet is the smallest member of the brass family. The sound on the cornet/trumpet is produced by buzzing into a small cup-shaped mouthpiece. This is a popular instrument. Physical Characteristics: While orthodontia is somewhat troublesome to a cornet/trumpet player, it is not impossible to make good sounds with braces. A slight overbite is okay, but an underbite can severely hinder progress on cornet/trumpet. Cornet/Trumpet players come in all shapes and sizes. Other Considerations: Cornet/Trumpet parts usually have the melody (recognizable) part. Therefore, students who choose and are selected for trumpet should exhibit a confident demeanor, strong personality, and demonstrate a high level of self-motivation. TRUMPET PERSONALITY: Confident & Daring

3 Trombone Trombone players should have good musical ears. The trombone is played like the other brass instruments (buzzing into a cup-shaped mouthpiece), but uses a slide instead of valves. The slide is not marked or notched and players rely on their memory and listening skills to tell if they are in the EXACT proper location. Students with good musical ears should consider Trombone. Physical Characteristics: While some might think that trombone players must have long arms, the truth is there are numerous accommodations that make it possible for students of all shapes and sizes to play. Trombone players should have slightly fuller lips than average. TROMBONE PERSONALITY: Sense of Humor & Good Ear for Music Other Considerations: Great trombone playing takes good concentration and study. Many quiet academicians have excelled at trombone. This is a good instrument choice for students who have participated in piano lessons or honor choir groups. Braces ok. Tuba The tuba is the largest instrument in the band and many would believe it would be hard to physically manage. The tubas we use for beginners are 3/4 size and easy to handle. There are a limited amount of tubas, students who are not selected for tuba may be recommended to play a euphonium (smaller version). Physical Characteristics: Tuba players need to have full lips and a large lung capacity. While the size of the student doesn t matter TOO much, a long torso (upper body) helps a student reach the mouthpiece of the tuba while resting the bottom of the tuba on the edge of their chair or across the thighs. Other Considerations: Instruments stay at school during the weekdays. Parents should arrange for tuba pick-up on Friday by 5:15 p.m. and tuba drop-off on Monday morning before school starts. Truck with cover for bed or SUV are recommended vehicles. Braces ok. TUBA PERSONALITY: Unique & Fun Loving Percussion Just because you are always tapping on things does not mean you are a natural percussionist (drummer). In fact, the percussion section is the most select, hand-picked section of the band. Only students with high grades, low discipline problems, and extremely high gross and fine motor skills will be considered for percussion. This is a popular instrument. Physical Characteristics: Students should exhibit a great deal of coordination in gross and fine motor skills. Other Considerations: The percussion family includes mallet instruments (bells, xylophone, marimba, vibes), accessories (triangle, tambourine, cymbals) and battery instruments (snare drum, bass drum, timpani). Percussionists have to learn two instruments at the same time: the practice pad and the bell kit (drum set is not taught at school). PERCUSSION PERSONALITY: Coordinated & Organized

4 Step-Up instruments Some students will continue mastering the instrument for many years. Some students will move to step-up instruments after beginning band. These instruments include oboe, bass clarinet, bassoon, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, and French horn. Professional musicians will come in and demonstrate these instruments for the beginning band toward the end of the school year. Students who are interested in switching will be able to test out the instrument. Students who are selected by the band director must have parent consent in order to switch instruments. Oboe The oboe is a small woodwind instrument that is similar to a clarinet. It uses a double reed. Physical Characteristics: Oboe players usually have small to medium size lips that cover the teeth. Fingers should be long and agile. Other Considerations: Students with double-jointed fingers should avoid selecting oboe as this condition can cause lack of agility in the fingers. The oboe takes a lot more time to master than some of the other instruments. Students who like a challenge are a good fit for the oboe. Private lessons highly recommended. Students should like Classical Music. Some orthodontia ok. High maintenance instrument. Beginning Band Instrument: Flute highly recommended. Clarinet okay. OBOE PERSONALITY: Patient & Scholarly Bassoon The bassoon is a large woodwind instrument. It uses a double reed. Physical Characteristics: Long fingers for large stretches. Natural overbite okay. Some orthodontia ok. Other Considerations: Students with double-jointed fingers should avoid selecting bassoon as this condition can cause lack of agility in the fingers. The bassoon takes a lot more time to master than some of the other instruments. Students who like a challenge are a good fit for the bassoon. Private lessons highly recommended. Students should like Classical Music. Some orthodontia ok. High maintenance instrument. BASSOON PERSONALITY: Dedicated & Exceptional Beginning Band Instrument: Flute, Clarinet, or Trombone. Should be able to read bass clef proficiently.

5 Bass Clarinet The bass clarinet uses a single reed and a mouthpiece to produce the sound. It is larger than a Bb clarinet. Physical Characteristics: One necessity of clarinet tone production is the ability to make the chin flat. Other Considerations: Same as clarinet BASS CLARINET PERSONALITY: Diligent & Focused Saxophone The saxophone is a woodwind instrument. It uses a single reed. They come in different sizes: alto (small), tenor (medium), and baritone (large). Physical Characteristics: Since the balance of the saxophone is maintained by the use of a neck strap, it is extremely important that students be able to sit up completely straight when asked to. Other Considerations: Saxophone players are responsible for maintaining a working stock of 4-6 quality reeds. A box of 10 reeds costs around $23.00 and can last (with proper care) up to 4 months. Alto Saxophone students will have the opportunity to audition for Tenor Sax or Baritone Sax (based on their proven musical and behavioral abilities while playing the alto saxophone) as a 7th grader. BASSOON PERSONALITY: Jazzy & Outgoing Beginning Band Instrument: Clarinet highly recommended. Flute okay. MUST AUDITION FOR JAZZ BAND

6 French Horn The French Horn is a member of the brass family. The sound of the French Horn is produced by buzzing into a small mouthpiece similar to a trumpet. Students with good musical ears (such as Honor Choir students and piano players) should consider French Horn. Physical Characteristics: While orthodontia is somewhat troublesome to a French Horn player, it is not impossible to make good sounds with braces. A slight overbite is okay, but an underbite can severely hinder progress on French Horn. The French Horn s valves are manipulated with the LEFT hand. Other Considerations: Because of the difficult nature of French Horn notes (mentioned above), students should exhibit GREAT ability to match sung or played pitches by humming or singing. This is a good instrument choice for students who have participated in piano lessons or honor choir groups. Students with a history of academic or behavioral problems will NOT be selected for French Horn. FRENCH HORN PERSONALITY: Academic & Brave Beginning Band Instrument: Trumpet or Trombone
