    6th Graders who played an instrument last year will be part of the “Developing Band.” They will have a lesson during class each Wednesday on a rotating basis. They will also have Developing Band during intervention every Thursday. Occasionally instead of having a Wednesday lesson, they will have Developing Band on Wednesdays.

    ​There will be an instrument demonstration with Timeline Music on Monday, September 10th at the start of first period (specials), which will run about 25 minutes. Instrument selection forms are due back by Tuesday, September 18th and instrument pickup night will be on Monday, September 24th. New band students will begin lessons on Wednesday, September 26th.

    I’ll have rosters of 6-8 grade band kids out following the meeting next week, and will send out a roster of new band students following the pickup night.
