Students who join the Alpharetta High School (AHS) Band program will be placed into one of three concert band classes that meet daily as part of the eight-period academic schedule. Unlike middle school band, each of the three band classes is ability-based, and therefore, has a mix of 9th -12th grade students. Percussion students are placed in either 4th period or 7th period percussion class. All students will audition for the advanced ensembles (Symphonic Band 1 and Wind Ensemble). The audition will involve submitting video files to Mr. Manson & Mr. Kaufman in March. Information will be distributed to all middle school students in March.
