Scholarship Opportunity!

The New Lenox Band Boosters will be offering a $250 scholarship to one of our 5th grade band members to be used towards private lessons or to attend a summer band camp. Please view the attachment below and turn in application and essay by Thursday, March 26.

This is open to all students whether you currently take private lessons or not. Private lesson scholarships will be awarded for band instruments only (private piano or private voice instruction do not qualify for the scholarship).

Additional Scholarship Opportunity

The Frankfort Brass Band annually awards many scholarships to local students to be used towards the cost of a summer band camp. There are many band camps that are held at colleges and universities. In addition, the Southwest Community Concert Band sponsors a summer band day camp in Orland Park. This is a great local camp and my kids have attended for many years. Details about the camp can be found at:


The Southwest Community Concert Band also offers a scholarship and that can be found on their website.

The Frankfort Brass Band Scholarship can be found below.

Please review page 16 and 17 in the band book as well as Star Wars and Dragon Slayer.

Please don't forget to sign up for Remind for band!

Please sign up for the free text service called Remind. I will use this in case of an emergency cancellation for morning band in case I am sick or one of my kids is sick. We are also approaching the colder winter weather months, so I will cancel if the weather/roads are bad.

You don't want to miss out on special remind texts from me!
