Where Can We Find Information About Band This Year?


  • CARDINAL HEIGHTS BAND WEBSITE will have links to lesson schedules, newsletter, band supplies, and other tools in case you ever need to look for something shared previously but lost it in your inbox. Consider the website as the "go to" place to find out information this year.
  • CHeights Band Newsletters (currently not on a regular basis...we'll see?!). These will contain reminders, updates on classwork, and special events or opportunities.

Lessons Continue Next Week!

We are into our first week of lessons with students and it is GREAT to meet each other as people and musicians.


Reminder - that students that have band on their schedule Quarter 1, have their lessons during band and will not see their name on the schedule (except Wednesday percussion students with Mr. Melrose).


Students enrolled in band Quarter 2, WILL see their name and time on the schedule.
