    How do I sign up?
    Students can sign up for band class in June before their 5th grade year. Registration is currently closed. Check back here in the spring to enroll your child online. If your child is new to their school and would like to sign up, please e-mail Ms. Nichols.
     
    Private lessons
    Private lessons are not required, but encouraged! Working with a qualified private teacher who is an expert on their instrument means greater progress for your child. If you are interested in having your child take private instrument lessons, please contact Ms. Nichols about private teacher recommendations.
