Sacaton Music Program
 

General music program - Sacaton Elementary school music program is offered to all students, pre-k through 4th grade. The kids learn the fundamentals of reading music while singing and playing instruments.  The students put on two concerts; one in December for Christmas and One during the spring.  The students sing a variety of music.  The bands also showcase music they have been working on throughout the year.

Sacaton Elementary School District Band program - Band at Sacaton started back up in 2016.  Band is offered starting at 4th grade, to students interested in learning to play an instrument.  The students are expected to commit for at least a semester so that they understand it takes time to learn to play music on the instrument they have chosen.  The students keep practice logs and can earn incentives for filling them out and getting them signed and brought back.

Sacaton Marching Braves - This year the Marching Braves have participated in four parades: River of Lights, Casa Grande Electric Light Parade and Mul-Cha-Tha. When the students are in middle school, they first learn the basics to march without their instruments so they get an idea of how to march together in a block.  They work on various marching exercises to keep their feet in time and have good posture.  When they are comfortable with marching without their instruments, they can start marching with them.  The band has to focus on keeping a smooth sound when playing and marching. The 4th grade band students have a couple opportunities where they can march with the middle school but not play their instruments.

Sacaton Braves Concert Bands - Concert band is for all band students.  The students perform at the Christmas and Spring Concerts and at other performances such as awards ceremonies, community events and pep games to support school sports.  The bands also went to their first concert festival called Pageant of the Bands.  They competed against seven other Elementary and Middle School bands.  Sacaton earned a bronze rating.
