Beginner Band Information
Welcome to the online registration for band. Any rising 6th grader is eligible for band.
Band is a year long Connections class, with minimal after school practice time. Band students come to band during their Connections time every other day on an A/B day schedule. Once we have assigned instruments, your child will be assigned to A or B day band. This schedule allows for all band members to still go to the other Connections classes, every other day. You do not have to make up work in the Connections classes you miss due to band. it does not impact your grade.
Selecting an instrument: You will list your top 3 choices on this form - and I will do my best to give you the one your prefer. I will let you know what you've been selected for in April, and we will have an Instrument Fair at Creekside on May 4th, a Saturday - where you will be given a time frame to come try out the instrument you'll play and even start a rental program for your instrument. If you find that the instrument you've been assigned is not a good fit on May 4th, you will have the opportunity to try your second or third choice.
Band Fee due in August/September: There is a band fee of $40.00 payable to "Creekside School" in August. This is a one time fee that covers the cost of your Band Shirt and Band Method Book, along with the music given throughout the year. If there is a financial reason why you may not be able to pay the fee or rent an instrument for your child, please call the school and leave me a message. No child is turned away, we will find an instrument for your child to learn. Again, don't send in the fee until next year!
Can I do sports and band? YES! Many 6th graders are involved in activities after school, that's why the majority of what we do is DURING the school day - leaving time for more extracurricular activities. Students do need to practice at home, so if you are involved in other activities be sure you have a little time to dedicate each day to practicing your new instrument - students who practice frequently advance quickly!
I can't wait to get started with all of you next year, we love our Warrior Band Members!
Check out this video about "Where Warriors Go" to find out more about where starting your journey in band can take you! At Creekside, our mascot is "The Warrior", and this video takes you from the beginner band at Creekside all the way through the High School band experience - THIS is where all the fun begins! I hope you'll decide to join us on a wonderful musical journey.
