The concert band of Allapattah Flats K-8 School is preparing for its end of the year concert under the direction of Elyse Larkins. In class, band members are working diligently to produce a good tone on their instrument by using air support. With this technique, students will develop a high quality sound. Along with learning the characteristics of tone of their instrument, band members are learning how to play their music expressively by using dynamics and phrasing.
