5th graders & parents, sign up now for Instrument Selection Night!

Posted on January 28, 2016

Students who will be in 6th grade next year use the "Instrument Selection Night" as an opportunity to handle and test a variety of band and orchestra instruments.  Professional music teachers are on hand to help “pair” each student with an instrument on which they will find great success in their middle school music experience! 

As students are making choices about music classes in 6th grade, it is critical that they be able to try a variety of instruments in order to make an informed decision about what class and which instrument they prefer.

Band instruments include:

  • Flute

  • Oboe

  • Clarinet

  • Saxophone

  • Trumpet

  • French Horn

  • Trombone

  • Baritone

  • Percussion

Orchestra instruments include:

  • Violin

  • Viola

  • Cello

  • Bass

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Instrument Selection Nights will be held at each middle school, beginning at the end of February and running through the month of March.  Parents of 5th grade students need to consider available dates, then choose one night and schedule their visit in advance—which is easily done online.
