    Students in 5th Grade can learn one of these instruments to be part of the band:

    • Flute

     Students will need to either rent or own their instrument in order to join band. It is not necessary to do anything during the summer to get ready for band. The students will receive all the information necessary to secure an instrument in September when they arrive to school. Please be on the lookout for the Beginning Band Packet that will go home with students next year. It will have all the information you’ll need to get ready to learn an instrument and join our school band.

    Besides having an instrument, band students will need their own copy of the Method Book that we use for 5th Grade Band.

    “Tradition of Excellence Book 1” by KJOS Publishing. The approximate cost is $12.95.

     5th Grade Band students will play their instrument 3x per week at school.
