On our way to make music with other amazing students from Beaverton and Gladwin! Learning from masters!
Enrollment is in full swing for next years Beginning Band class!
The music students and teachers have been working hard to get your kids ready. We have taught them, performed a concert for them, demonstrated different instruments for them and have even tested them!
Your students should know by now what instrument they want to play next year. We have tested them on that instrument and they should know what we suggest as a good starting point for them.
The next step is to get them enrolled! We also have a parent meeting on the 23rd of May at 6PM in the Band Room. Herter Music Center from Bay City will be there as well to assist you with questions about how to obtain an instrument.
You can find out more information on the Beginning Band Page of this website.
You can enroll your 4th grader here.
