Welcome to Mr. B's Band!
The Band ExperienceThe band program is for distinguished students seeking additional music experience in a large instrumental performing ensemble. This ensemble is treated as a professional performance opportunity of high quality and caliber beyond the general music classroom. All of the repertoire chosen for this ensemble have higher than average music demands and challenges every student’s instrumental and music theory abilities. We are looking forward to the upcoming seasonal winter and spring concerts as well as additional volunteer community concerts throughout the year. Students are expected to participate the full year with appropriate behavior and attendance while continuing to achieve academic goals in the general classroom. Band registration is open to all students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. Here’s to another successful year of playing beautifully together and making musical memories to last a lifetime.

All rehearsals are held in the elementary library from 7:40-8:40 am on Thursdays for all band members, Wednesdays for flute, clarinet, and saxophone players, and Tuesdays for trumpet, trombone, and drum players.
