Please read the following important information and be sure to check the "I have read and agree" box:

It’s finally here! It’s time for your child to choose which band or string instrument they would like to play next school year!

During an assembly students discovered the instruments that make up an ensemble, how these instruments make music, and how they can learn to play a musical instrument. Lessons for beginning musicians are being provided on the following instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Baritone, and Percussion.

Your child may have one particular instrument in mind. However, we require students to provide three choices in order of preference. Of the three choices, you need to have one string and one band instrument among your preference list. Most students are able to start lessons with their first choice. With scheduling and balanced instrumentation in mind, you may be contacted about your second or third choices. Every position on a baseball diamond is critical for team success. The same is true in the band and orchestra. The success of the elementary, as well as future middle and high school instrumental groups, relies on well-balanced instrumentation from the first day of instruction forward.

* Our goal is to encourage the mid to low pitched instruments - Trombone, Baritone, Viola, & Cello *

Instrumental Music Registration is split into two steps. This will allow the teachers to establish who is playing what instrument BEFORE any payment is made. This process will streamline registration and eliminate unnecessary confusion in the summer.

Step I
May 21, 2018 through June 5, 2018

Online Instrumental Music Registration

(you will be taken to the registration after submitting this form)

In this window of time, please complete the registration form found in the next part of this online registration. You will find a direct link to the Instrumental Music Informational Survey. Submit the registration online. You can submit questions directly into the survey and we suggest you do so. Once the window of Step I is closed, the directors will firm up what child will be playing what instrument in the 2018-2019 school year. At that time your child will receive vendor information so you can acquire a high quality instrument for the fall. Registering before renting will eliminate confusion in August. If you already have access to an instrument it should be checked during Step I of this process! Returning students need to register for 5th grade so the teachers have a current e-mail address on file.

Step II
June 15, 2018 - August 1, 2018
Rental/ Lease Agreement Completion

When you receive an email from the directors confirming your child's instrument choice, your child will receive paperwork at school with information about what vendors are available to you so you can rent an instrument. The instrument your family and the director have decided upon will be delivered to school in August along with a book ready to get started!  STUDENTS WHO ALREADY HAVE ACCESS TO AN INSTRUMENT MUST PURCHASE A BOOK!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Paper contracts are available upon request.

Thank you. We look forward to getting started again this fall!
