Why Join the Band?
The Chance to Change a Life!
Music is an important part of every child’s life. But few students have the chance
to learn the language of music, to read it, to feel it, to actually play it. Your child
has that opportunity this fall as we start Beginning Band! As a parent, you can
introduce music into the life of your child, while broadening and substantively
improving your child’s education.
Music is Fun!
Just listening to music is enjoyable, but playing it is even better! Participating in band gives a student the chance to be part of a team of kids learning, growing and taking part in the creation of music. There is always 100% involvement. There is no “second string” or “riding the bench” in band.
Music Develops the Mind
Science is discovering exciting new details about how music helps develop the mind. Learning to play an instrument has now been linked to improved math skills and other higher order thinking. National research proves that children who study an instrument in school get higher grades!

Music for Life
A child who learns to perform music develops an entirely new dimension in their
life. Music is the universal language. The young musician will learn musical
history and traditions, while developing an appreciation for the diversity of other
cultures. Your child will learn creativity, and learn to judge the quality of the
music he or she hears. Your child will begin to look at music as an art, and listen
with a whole new perspective.
Morning Band rehearsals are open to 5th & 6th graders only.
