• WHAT IS BAND?

     

    A Band is a group of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments playing all together in a large group. We will begin the year by playing tunes by ear, and our first concert will be a showcase of those. In February, we will start reading traditional band charts; we'll perform those in the Spring.

  • WHEN DOES BAND MEET?

     

    Rehearsals will take place during the after-school activity period; 3:05-3:40pm.  Students can take a late bus home or be picked up by a parent.  If you are picking up your child, you must sign them out in the office.

    Jefferson RoadEvery Monday, starting November 4th.

    Mendon Center: Every Wednesday, starting November 6th.

     

    ATTENDANCE EXPECTATIONS
