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.   


    5th Grade Band will begin September 5th

    What do we do now?
