The band program is available to all students in 4th through 8th Grade. Students may choose from Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, Bells/Perc. Rental instruments are advised. However, if you choose to use a family or friend “hand me down” instrument, or one you have found online, please consult with the teacher so I can assure you it is in proper working condition and an adequate model to ensure your child’s success. Some school instruments are available in particular areas.
