Welcome to the KMS 7th & 8th Grade Band website. The KMS 7th & 8th grade bands meet daily as a regularly scheduled class. The literature for each band is selected from a wide variety of musical styles including music from other cultures as well as the American Wind Band tradition. Bands perform everything from band arrangements of current popular music to transcriptions of classics.
KMS JAZZ BAND - The Karcher "WALL OF SOUND" jazz band is made up of both 7th and 8th grade band members. "WOS" is run as a club and meets every Monday after school from 2:30-3:15. Music selection is similar to that of the band class. Students will play musical styles from around the world but with an emphasis on the strong American tradition of jazz. An emphasis is put on the creativeness of improvisation.
