We Are Still Gearing Up for 6th Grade Band!

Although mouthpiece testing and instrument fittings have been postponed, the Patrick Marsh and Prairie View band staff are already working to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year. This newsletter will provide you with some basic information and the process we will follow.

Can I Still Join Band?

YES! We would like to encourage all students to consider joining 6th grade band next year. Although course registration took place back in January, we are happy to work with student services to make changes to student's course selections. Regardless if you "officially" registered for band in January, we would like ALL interested families to fill out the form below.

Percussion is available for students to play by audition only due to the high degree of independence that these instruments require. Auditions will take place in October and all interested students should sign up for band. All students will be placed on a woodwind or brass instrument to start on.
