FOR A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE OMS BAND PROGRAM, AS WELL AS ALL PROCEDURES, please click on the link to the left called, "OMS Handbook." It will hopefully answer any and all questions you might have about the groups.

The 2015-2016 District Band Solos are located underneath the "District Band Opportunities" link to the left More information about elementary and intermediate district band will be made available as soon as I receive it.

ROTATIONAL LESSONS take place during marking periods 1, 3, 4, and 6, every student enrolled in band will receive one instrumental group lesson each 6-day cycle. Please note that these lessons DO NOT appear on a student's class schedule. They are available using the "6th Grade Lesson Schedules" or "7th/8th Grade Lesson Schedules" links to the left or as paper copies in the OMS Band Room. Students need their instruments on their lesson day.

DURING MARKING PERIODS 2 AND 5 students will attend Band Class during the period that is listed on their school schedule. There are no rotational lessons during these marking periods.

AFTER SCHOOL PRACTICE SCHEDULES FOR THE ENTIRE 2015-2016 SCHOOL YEAR
can be found by clicking on the appropriate link to the left under either 6th Grade Band or 7th/8th Grade Band headings. Students are asked to attend only 5 after school practices before each concert to prepare for our performance. 


Monetary Problems:
If money is an issue for you please do not hesitate to contact me. Everything will ALWAYS be kept completely confidential, and no questions will be asked. We work on an honor system and completely understand that some people cannot afford a book, an instrument rental, or supplies. We will absolutely accommodate any and all situations; no student will be deprived of the opportunity to be in band. We cannot guarantee a student will be able to play the instrument they want, but if they want to be in the band we will get them an instrument, and teach them how to play. If a student cannot keep up with their schoolwork, or is a disruption to our program, action will be taken that is in the best interest of that student, and the students around them.
