The Intermediate Band is the second-year band at Happy Hollow Elementary School. The vast majority of students are in the sixth grade. Admission is contingent on successful completion of the Happy Hollow Beginning Band or a private lesson background with permission of the director. This band meets two mornings a week before school. Emphasis is on building music literacy skills, playing technique, and rhythmic independence. The band plays music of a grade 1-2 level (out of 6). The Intermediate Band performs at the winter and spring band concerts, as well as the ISSMA District Festival in March.
