WHY JOIN BAND?
Band is FUN - Rising to the challenge of making music with a group can result in some fun, goofy, memorable experiences that will stick around for a lifetime.
Band is a GATEWAY - When students move on to high school they will have the opportunity to sign up for concert bands, jazz bands, pep bands, and marching bands. Starting band now builds a strong foundation for students who wish to continue their musical experience in high school.
Band is a WHOLESOME experience - One of the most positive experiences you can offer your child is the chance to learn self-discipline at an advanced level through participation in band. Their social skills, communication skills, self-concepts, cooperative talents and creative mind will all be nurtured through their study of music. These life-skills will serve as an important foundation as they take on various responsibilities in their future.
