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, November 5th.
We will also be having a “Band night” on Tuesday, October 30th. Graner music will be here from 4:30 to 6:00 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 6:00 p.m.
The instruments that are allowed for first year students are flute, clarinet, trumpet, baritone, and bells. Second year students may switch upon approval with me (saxophone, oboe, trombone, tuba).
In order to have adequate amount of instruments available at the band night, please feel out the attached yellow form and return it to me as soon as possible.
You can also go online and fill out the same information at either of these websites:
If you are unable to attend band night, please let me know and I can give you some information on where to you can rent or purchase instruments.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
