About The Program

Chadds Ford Elementary School offers instruction on band instruments (woodwinds, brasswinds, and percussion) for students in grades 4 and 5.  Students receive a half hour smalgroup lesson during the day once every 6 school days, as well as 1 full band rehearsal at recess every 6 school days.

My name is Mr. Miller and I am the director of bands at CFES.  I am in the building on cycle days A and B. If your child is not enrolled in the band program and would like to be, feel free to contact me via the E-mail address or phone number listed to the left.

CFES Band Rehearsal Schedule
4th Grade Band Rehearsals are every "A" day (starting in late December or early January)
5th Grade Band Rehearsals are every "B" day (also every "A" day until 4th grade band rehearsals start).
