Band begins in the fourth grade here in Needham. The 4th graders will see a band instrument demonstration at school on the following instruments:  Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone and Percussion. They will get a sign up sheet on that day, and if they decide to play and need to rent an instrument, they will get their band instruments at the end of September.

Fifth grade band is the advanced band. In 5th grade there are no group lessons like there were in the 4th grade. Instead, we will meet for a 45 minute rehearsal every week as 
a full band.

Broadmeadow 5th grade band will meet on Tuesdays from 7:30-8:15 am in the Performance Center, starting on 9/5/17
Eliot 5th grade band will meet on Thursdays from 7:30-8:15am in the Performance Center, starting on 9/7/17

Students should bring their instruments and their Standard of Excellence books. I am looking forward to a very fun and musical year!
