Students in Grades 4 and 5 who are interested in learning how to plan an instrument or who wish to continue playing as part of an ensemble may participate in the Primary School Band/Orchestra at no extra cost.

There is an ensemble for students who already play an orchestral or band instrument. It is open for wind and percussion players as well as advanced string players. Also, there are beginning group classes for orchestral wind and percussion instruments. The beginning classes will merge into the ensemble in the spring.

All classes will take place after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 3:30 and 4:30 PM. Supervision will be provided for students up until the end of the practice. Students who participate in instrumental music will need to rent their instrument from a local music store. Contact Joshua Frayer with any questions.


Sign up for 2017-2018 Primary School band is now open. Please complete the required fields on this form.
