Welcome

 to Instrumental Music


Remember to...

...Practice, practice practice!

Instrumental lessons begin in fourth grade. During the spring of third grade the instrumental selection process takes place. Students may choose from the woodwind, brass, percussion or string families.



Band:
Flute
Clarinet
Alto Saxophone
Tenor Saxophone
Trumpet
 French Horn
Trombone
Baritone
Tuba
Percussion
Strings:
Cello
Double Bass
Viola
Violin

Fourth and Fifth Grade Band members will receive a small group 30 minute lesson once a week. Lessons will rotate throughout the day so children will not miss the same class each week.  

Classroom teachers instruct their students how to make-up missed assignments while attending their lessons. Each Student is expected to practice six times a week for twenty to thirty minutes. Students are required to bring practice logs signed by their guardian to each lesson. This practice log is the key to success in instrumental music. Fifth grade students perform both a winter and spring concert. Fourth graders perform their first concert in spring.
