Hello all 6th grade parents,
I am wrapping up instrument screenings and I am sure your child has come home and told you what they have decided to play in band.
DONT BUY ANYTHING!!!!!!
I have strict guidelines as to what types of brands and models I like to have in band class so that we can get the best sound. These instruments will all be available at our instrument nights next week.
September 2nd (first 6th grade band class) and September 3rd (second 6th grade band class) from 5:30-8pm will be our instrument nights.
Please plan on being their at 5:30 for a very brief meeting with the Music and Arts Representatives. Then we will begin the instrument rental process. As soon as you are done you can leave. This doesn’t usually take all the way until 8pm. If your child has an after school activity to attend that is ok as long as you come.
We will be renting flutes, clarinets, alto saxes, trumpets, trombones, and percussion kits. Any French horn, baritone and tuba players can come to get their mouthpieces, and books etc…
I do have French horns students may use as
school owned instruments but I highly recommend renting a single horn.
If you have any questions you can always email me or Ms. Menendez.
I look forward to seeing you next week.
