Starting the summer after 4th grade your child can begin participating in Band. About 90% of band students start the summer after 4th grade. The rest will have the opportunity to start in the fall of 5th grade.
The summer beginning band program consists of a 45-minute small-group lesson, Monday through Thursday, for four weeks starting Monday, July 8 through Thursday, August 1. The summer session concludes with a concert for parents the evening of the last day. We cover about a year’s worth of material in four weeks. For more information, please click here or visit the summer band website.
