Firebirds – The Franklin Band

Fire BirdsBand Concert

Monday during lunch and Friday after school (1:45-2:45).

This is an extracurricular multi-level band that is welcome to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who are interesting in learning a band instrument or students who already play one.  I anticipate dedicating one day towards beginning students, one day towards intermediate/advanced students, and a single combined band day so that students will only have to attend two days a week.

Parents are asked to supply instruments (there are rental options at Gracewinds music store) and books.  I do have a limited supply of instruments and books available for loan. There is no charge for being in band, but we ask that parents make a voluntary donation of $20 for shirts an incidental costs.

There will be an information session and introduction of instruments before Middle Curriculum Night on Tuesday, September 22, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.  We will still take the first week of band or so to help students decide their instruments, but the sooner we can get a student set on an instrument, the better!
