Band and Orchestra information for rising sixth graders

Band and Orchestra information for rising sixth graders

We are looking forward to an exciting year for your beginning band or orchestra student! Choosing an instrument is an exciting first step to learning music! Last school year, your child was able to see and hear the instruments that are being offered to the beginning band and orchestra students. To join beginning band or orchestra, students must select an instrument for the school year.  You may obtain an instrument anywhere you wish; however, we recommend some type of rental/purchase plan. We have included a couple of local music stores to help with your search. Students should have instruments by August 31st instruction begins.

It is important to understand that there are a set number of students selected to play each instrument depending on the size of the band or orchestra. This will ensure an enjoyable musical experience for everyone. This is why filling out the Instrument Preference Form below and attending an in person fitting is so important. Even though the student has the opportunity to choose the instrument they wish to start on, the teacher reserves the right to discuss and change placement, to ensure student success, when students return to in person education. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions or concerns you may have in the upcoming days.

We look forward to meeting you all soon!
