Summer band is a great way for your kiddo to get a step up for the 2019-2020 school year.  We will be offering a beginning band for incoming 4th graders this year!  Parents, please DO NOT procure an instrument before your kiddo before they receive an instrument assignment from their band director.  We carefully guide students towards instruments we think they will be successful playing.
