The Clermont Middle School “Blue Falcon” Band is the largest student organization on campus with approximately 150 student musicians enrolled in four band classes. Our program consists of the “Blue Falcon” Regiment, Beginning Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Woodwind Choir, Brass Choir and the nationally acclaimed “Flight of Sound” Jazz Ensemble.
The two concert performance ensembles, Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band, perform in two concerts each year, participates in all of the Florida Bandmasters Association Music Performance Assessments and provides the music for the Falcon Flight promotion ceremony. Members of these ensembles make up the Woodwind and Brass Choirs.
The “Blue Falcon” Regiment is the marching band and it is comprised of members of the two concert ensembles. This ensemble performs in parades, school sporting events, pep rallies and recruitment activities.
The Beginning Band, a mixed ensemble of 6-8 grade students who are learning to play an instrument for the first time as well as veteran members who are learning a second instrument, holds a clinic/workshop at the start of the school year and performs twice annually.
Giving a child and instrument is the same as giving them an imagination; the possibilities are endless. Nothing can stop them from accomplishing their dreams. -- Grace Cooksey

In this animated video made by the awesome Mark Newman, you are going to learn all you need to know about the Circle of Fifths. The trainer demonstrates some of its many uses in music composition. "The Circle of Fifths is a visual representation of the relationships between the 12 tones of the chromatic scale. It was invented by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras and is so called as it takes the form of a circle around which each of the 12 tones are laid out. As you move around the circle in a clockwise direction, the next tone you encounter will be a 5th above the tone before it. The Circle of Fifths lies at the very foundation of western music theory and is therefore extremely useful as you can refer to it to help you find out things like, what key you are in. If you are in a major key it helps you find the relative minor key and visa versa. It tells you which chords are available in which key. It can even help you to transpose your music into a different key and move between keys within a song." (source : Mark Newman) Hope it helps !
