Hello, and welcome to the elementary band and music page.  The menu to the left will assist you with everything you need to know regarding band, when band tryouts take place, information about the instruments, instrumental rental information, a music calendar of events, and many other things you can explore about music.  Please feel free to look through this menu.  I try to update the page regularly throughout the school year, so check for anything that may have changed.

Starting in Pre-K and Kindergarten, students will learn many "new" music concepts, such as keeping a steady beat, instruments and their families, playing instruments, and singing together as a group.  We enforce these basics while introducing more concepts during the following six years they attend the elementary school.  Starting in fourth grade, students have the option to continue their regular music class or learn music through band by learning a wind instrument.  In fifth grade, students may start to learn percussion after auditioning for the class.  Tryouts and auditions for these instruments start in the second semester of students' third grade year.

If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not ever hesitate to contact me.  Communication is important to a student's success, and I do my best to communicate with my students, their parents, and teachers.
