There are two sixth grade classes, woodwinds (flute, clarinet) and brass/percussion (trumpet, trombone). Beginning students (except percussion) may choose which instrument they would like to play. Students are asked to make a final selection prior to the second week of the school year in sixth grade.
All students will begin the year playing either flute, clarinet, trumpet, or trombone. Students interested in playing percussion or alto saxophone will audition to switch to these instruments at the beginning of the second semester.
Information will be provided at a meeting during the first week of school for parents inquiring about how to obtain an instrument for their child. All pertinent information for incoming 6th grade parents and students is included in a summer letter sent to all rising 6th graders who have registered for Band during the spring of 5th grade.
