Attention: 5th Grade Families
Believe it or not, the time has come to start planning for 6th Grade! All Allen ISD 6th graders must choose a “specialized” music course for 6th grade. The choices we offer are Band, Orchestra and Choir. Students have seen performances from all the groups from Ford and will be further discussing their choices with their Music Teacher. Their Music Teacher is available to answer questions about Choir, but the students also watched the following informational videos about 6th Grade Band and Orchestra.
o Band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=8X-5WwQ2tH8&feature=youtu.be (11 minutes 59 seconds)
o Orchestra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTN62ogM8Sg&feature=youtu.be (13 minutes 37 seconds)
Please sit down and discuss music options with your 5th grade student. Once you think you have come to a decision, please fill out the form located here:
