Middle School Modern Band

At this time, as part of the Round Lake Charter Music Program, we are pleased to offer Modern Band as an elective to all RLC Middle School students. 

Modern Band is an entirely new kind of school music program.  It teaches students to perform, improvise and compose using popular musical styles they are familiar with such as rock, pop, reggae, hip hop, R&B and other modern musical styles. Modern Band classes feature guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, vocals, and technology in the music making process.

Modern Band expands upon existing traditional school music programming such as Concert Band, Marching Band, Jazz Band and Chorus, making music available to students who might otherwise not participate in traditional music classes. 

While many aspects of learning a musical instrument will carry over from year to year, there are a few differences and bits of information that all members (both new and returning) need to be aware of that are contained in handbook found below.  Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the information in this handbook and print/download a copy for your records.  Then, please fill out the online information form also linked below.
