New Band Students/Parents

Please do not purchase an instrument without first talking to Mrs. Mellin.  We will go over the rental process the first week of school.  Any instrument that is brightly colored, or found at Costco, Amazon, Target, Walmart, or Ebay will very likely not be of high enough quality to last the school year.  Please wait to talk to Mrs. Mellin before getting something that looks like it is a "good deal".

 

Instruments will not be needed for the first 2 weeks of the school year.  Students will change their minds about what instrument they want to play, and this is OKAY (until August 21st.)  If you are new to instruments and the rental process, an information packet will go home on the first day of school with everything you need to know.

 

Can't wait to meet all our new musicians!
