We would like to encourage all students and families to access this website, and then select their chosen class (band, choir, or orchestra) and their instrument (band-woodwinds: flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, brass: trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba; choir-singing; orchestra-violin, viola, cello, and bass) from the registration link on the home page (it takes you to a Google Form to select their class and instrument).

**Band will not be starting alto saxophone or tenor saxophone or percussion in the fall, but will instead start these instruments second semester. Students interested in playing alto saxophone or tenor saxophone should start on clarinet, and students interested in percussion should start on clarinet or trumpet. 

We highly encourage students to not purchase an instrument at this time. We recommend all beginners rent so that they have flexibility if they need to change instruments, since we have not had the opportunity to do the instrument fittings we would normally do in the spring. This is especially important for orchestra so that they have the correct size of instrument to learn on from the beginning for greater success.

We recommend families rent at the following places:

Paige’s Music

317-635-6274

Students and families can contact any middle school music teacher with questions about our classes. Again, we are so excited about next school year and are looking forward to all 6th graders participating in a music class.
