The 4th and 5th grade bands at Dade Christian School begin getting exposed to instruments and the art of mastering playing together. In 4th and 5th grade they learn basic music skills, listening and mastering their instrument in preparation for Seconday band. The Elementary bands also perform twice a year: once at Christmas and once in the Spring.
Some of our elementary students are chosen to compete at the Junior Competition of FACCS (Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools.) There they compete against other students their age from Christian schools around the state of Florida. In the 2009-2010 school year, our students won 1st place at the FACCS regional and state competition in the brass solo and woodwinds solo categories.
