6th Grade Band Information 2015-2016



Beginning Band Survey

If you are receiving this slip (also in an email), your son or daughter is enrolled in the Bolivar Middle School 6th Grade band class.  The 2015 beginning band class is the largest we have had in 10 years.  Because of this, Mr. Trew and I need to plan ahead for school instruments.  If you will be renting, or already have an instrument, please let your son or daughter know this information.  If you need a school instrument, please fill in the information below, and then return this slip by Monday (August 17th).  Students can also simply tell us in class. 

Reminders
 
-Instrument rent-to-own display night at the High School is August 25th.  Springfield Music Store will be available for instrument rentals.  Before this date, we will be trying out instruments in class.  Please inform your son or daughter about renting, using previously owned horns, or using school instruments.  School instruments are limited and the choice of instrument will be up to the teacher if other access to equipment is not available.  All percussion instruments are assigned by audition only. 

-BolivarMusic.org is our band website.  More information concerning beginning band is available there.   For regular updates to the page, visit the website and add your email to the ‘Follow Me by Email” link. 

-Please make sure your current Email is on file with the middle school office.  Most of our communication will be discriminated by email. 

-Beginning Band will perform one concert this year in the Spring.  Dates will be posted on the website.
