Middle School Band Information


Do you have a 5th grader coming to Stiles next year? Are they excited to try out instruments and join the band? Please join us on Saturday, April 16th in the Stiles cafeteria to meet your instrumental destiny J. It is drop-in between 9am and 3:30pm but some instruments do fill up. I would plan for it to take 1-2 hours, depending on how many instruments your child would like to try. For more information, see our website:http://stilesmsband.org/future-band-members/.
