Please email the directors if you have any additional questions or concerns.


Every Honors & Symphonic (2nd/3rd year) student will attend weekly sectionals beginning this week. Students will receive a grade for each sectional based on attendance and preparation. Symphonic students attend Friday sectionals unless they choose to audition for region. Athletes should communicate this schedule with coaches in advance. Tutorials should be scheduled around your required sectional day/time. Absences must be communicated 24 hours in advance. Emergency absences should be emailed by a parent within 24 hours. WHen in doubt, email directors. Percussion sectionals are during band class. Woodwind & Brass students are expected to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to their scheduled sectional.

Please see the schedule below and let us know if you have any questions!

Our PRIVATE LESSON Teachers are back on campus!

Please see the private lessons form that will be coming home by Tuesday. We will explain what private lessons are, who are teachers are, and much more at Tuesday's meeting!

Coming Soon!

Coyle Band students will be receiving Objective Sheets for the 1st Nine Weeks very soon! This is how we will track your child's progress in band--each student is responsible for passing each objective off before the end of the 9 weeks. Objectives can be passed off before and after school, as well on designated objective sheet days.
