Summer band concert with JH and Taisha ELEMs - 7
Originally uploaded by Jason In Japan.
In addition to my Junior High band, there were bands from three of my local elementary schools as well.
Here is the band from Taisha Elementary School, which is my largest elem school with about 400 students.
The conductor of their band, who is hard to see in this pic because she is wearing black and bowing, is not a regular teacher at the school, but someone they bring in special to teach the music students.
Only the 4th thru 6th graders are able to join the band and it's a much smaller ensemble than the band they'll join at Taisha Jr High if they continue to study music.
The Taisha Sho band members simply wore their school uniforms onstage, unlike the other two elem schools that follow.
