The Germantown High School Intermediate Winds and Percussion are the training classes for the Varsity Band. They meet daily during the school year and students will be working to improve their playing skills through the use of fundamental exercises such as scales, arpeggios, chorales, technical studies, and concert music. Students are required to practice at home and are given individual assignments to be graded.
Students will have the opportunity to audition for the All-West Tennessee Concert Band and the Intermediate Winds and Percussion perform two formal concerts in December and May. They will also participate in the West Tennessee Solo and Ensemble Festival held in April. Occasional concert rehearsals are held after school, but these are few in number. Students will have a chance to audition for the Varsity Band at the end of the second semester.
