Band and Strings

Welcome back for a new school year!

Fifth and sixth grade students will have the opportunity to join strings and band this year, and we are very excited to have your kids join the hundreds of kids that are already participating in these wonderful programs!  In the upcoming weeks, we will be visiting with your students, demonstrating various band and orchestra instruments, and presenting information about what being in instrumental music in the North Area can mean for your kids. There will also be an evening demonstration, so that parents can ask questions, and students can try instruments one more time before making a decision regarding their instrument of choice.

We are excited to get started and meet our future band and orchestra members!  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact:
