Harrison Band Announcements

Welcome back for the start of the 2017-2018 school year!

I will be meeting briefly with all 5th grade students during the first week of school to talk about band lessons for this year. I will hand out registration forms to each student that is interested in being in band at this time. Please return the registration form with your student as soon as possible.

I will be meeting with students who return their band registration forms on Wednesday, August 23rd. All students will have the opportunity to try all of the band instruments on the this day- it should be fun! The purpose for each student trying out various band instruments is to give me a chance to evaluate each student... we want everyone to be successful on the instrument they choose and the shape of each person's mouth, lips, teeth and jaw (as well as natural musical ability) really do factor in to choosing the right instrument. I will send home a note with each student that outlines my instrument recommendation for your child along with other information about band lessons.

For 6th Grade Band Students Only: our first day of band lessons will be Wednesday, August 23rd! Please make plans to bring your band instrument and Sound Innovations book on the 23rd- you can store your instrument on the storage shelves inside the door to the stage.

Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you have about band lessons. I'm looking forward to a great year of music at Harrison!

-Mr. Cosby
