Incoming 5th Grade Families 21-22 Band

Dear incoming 5th Graders and Families,

During your 5th Grade year you will come across many new, exciting opportunities. One or those is the option to participate in 5th grade band! Band involves playing flute, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, baritone, or percussion (drum set is not a part of the school band).

Most students who participate have never played any of these instruments before, so you don’t need to worry that you don’t know how to play - that’s what we’re here for! If you have already played one of these instruments, that is great too! We’ll make sure you get music that is appropriate for your level.

While I will officially enroll students once we are back at school in the fall, if this is something you know you are interested in, please take a few minutes to look through the information and fill in the form so that we can be sure to contact you at the appropriate time.


Musically Yours,

Mr. Canel (
