COVID-19 UPDATE

FOR Fall 2021 BAND CLASSES

Concert Band (MUS 166) and Wind Ensemble (MUS 162) were approved to be taught in-person for the Fall 2021 semester! More information will be posted soon on socially-distanced rehearsals, masking, and other safety precautions. If you have any questions about ensembles here at SBVC, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Department Chair, Margaret Worsley (mworsley@valleycollege.edu).


Concert Band (MUS 166) and Wind Ensemble (MUS 162) provide a musically creative opportunity for students who play wind, brass, and percussion instruments to collaborate together. The course fulfills Ensemble credit for the Music AA and Music AA-T degrees, and focuses on the study of fundamentals (scales, rhythm, tuning), and standard wind band repertoire. Prior experience on an instrument is suggested for Concert Band and required for Wind Ensemble.

Concert Band and Wind Ensemble meet during the semester on Monday nights at 6pm.
