Our sectional instructors providing specific information by instrument each week to the students creates an opportunity for more growth and development of each musician. Music is for ALL - our band program is proud to have students and families that participate in music as well as other activities. Our students are musicians, academics, athletes, school leaders and eventually leaders in our communities. We hope you have a wonderful year in beginning band and that this turns into a lifelong activity for you and your student!
