Donations Fundraiser

We would like to thank everyone who participated in this year's fundraiser! Due to your hard work and effort, we were able to raise a grand total of $7,520!!!! This money will help to greatly lower the cost of this year's trip for our awesome Wildcat Band! More information is forthcoming and will be sent home in the next few weeks.

Daily Individual Practice

Did you know?....

That the more consistency our band members have with their daily practice, the greater improvements they will make in their individual playing. Please encourage your student to practice on a daily basis! It should only take anywhere from 15-20 minutes to work on the parts of their music they struggle with.

Symphonic Band Practice Schedule

Below you will find the practice schedule for our Symphonic Band. We will only be asking them to come in once a week for 35 minutes, so we ask that they make it a priority to be here. We understand that our students are highly involved in other activities, but 35 minutes is a minimal amount of time, compared to other activities that meet every day. Thank you very much for your support as we prepare for our Winter Concert taking place on December 11th!
