Welcome to 5th-Grade Band! 

    During our time together in Music Specials, your student will be introduced to the band instrument choices for this year: flute, clarinet, trumpet, and trombone. The students will have the opportunity to audition to switch to other instruments (saxophone, percussion, etc.) at a later date.   

    While the program may look a little different this year, we are committed to providing a fun, safe environment for students to learn an instrument. 


    5th Grade Band will begin September 8th

    What do we do now?

    1. Acquire an instrument. If you own an instrument, please make sure it is in good working order. If you are interested in instrument rentals, we have provided links to a few companies that we recommend.
