During April, information about enrolling for band (trombone, trumpet, clarinet, flute) and orchestra (cello, viola, or violin) is being distributed to fourth and fifth grade students. Families are invited to attend one of the enrollment meetings (below), where the instruments will be demonstrated and more information will be available.
At the elementary school level, the instrumental music program includes weekly group lessons at school and weekly after-school rehearsals at the local junior high school (on Tuesdays for fifth grade and Thursdays for sixth grade). Families must provide transportation for the after-school rehearsals. No previous music experience is necessary to play an instrument. Band and orchestra lessons will start at the beginning of next school year. If you have any questions, please visit sd54.org/instrumentenrollment or contact the band or orchestra teacher at your school.
