2020-2021Beginning band starts with attending a districtInstrument Selection Night
- District 622 band directors would like all incoming beginning band students to attend an instrument selection night in order to try out a couple of band instruments and select the instrument for you! This process will help the parent(s), band director and student make a well-informed decision together with each other. Also, it will allow each middle school to create a balanced ensemble, which will help to create the best beginning band class experience.
Please join us for an Instrument Selection Night!
Tuesday, March 24th anytime from 4-6:30 PM at John Glenn
Monday, March 30th anytime from 4-6:30 PM at Skyview
*Students from any of the district #622 middle schools may attend either of the dates above regardless of the school they will attend in the fall. All incoming 6th grade students that will be attending Maplewood Middle School, John Glenn Middle School or Skyview are encouraged to attend!
You may rent/purchase an instrument from one of the three music companies that will be available that evening. Also, you may begin the process for reserving a school owned instrument for your child to rent from the school. School owned instruments are first designated to students who qualify for free/reduced lunch prices. The instrument rental fee will be calculated on a sliding scale and is a one time - school year fee.
If you have an instrument that your child will be using, we ask that it is in good working condition prior to the start of the school year to ensure the best possible start for your child. If you have an instrument that you would like bring with you to the Instrument Selection Night, we will have a instrument repair tech. available from Haas Musical Instrument Repair to give you a free inspection and repair estimate if necessary.
