Band will be starting very soon and I know it will be a very exciting year at Eagleside. Band is opened to all 4th and 5th grade students who are interested. The focus of Eagleside’s band program is to give students a great foundation and start on a musical instrument prior to entering middle school.
Band Rehearsals are on Monday’s from, 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. You are responsible for providing transportation for your child after band rehearsals. Please fill out the pink permission form to insure your child has transportation arrangements for after school hours. The first day of band will be on Monday, October 21st for flutes and clarinets and bells only. Monday, October 28th will be for trumpets, horns, and baritones only. Everyone on November 18th! Please look at the attached calender.
We will also be having a “Band night” on Tuesday, October 8thth from 4:30pm – 5:45pm. Garner music will be here from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. to give students the opportunity to play different instruments. You will also have the opportunity to rent the instrument, discuss purchasing opportunities, etc. You do not have to be here the entire time. Feel free to come and go when convenient for you between 4:30 and 5:45p.m.
The instruments that are allowed for first year students are flute, clarinet, trumpet, baritone, and bells.
**The book we will be using this year is “Sound Innovations, Book 1.” Please make sure that you purchase this book. It is very important to practicing at home and during rehearsals.**
