4th Grade Meet the Instruments Night

On Thursday, May 12, the RCS Music Department will be hosting a Meet the Instruments Night! The event will take place in the Middle School Cafeteria and LGR from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

4th graders and their families are invited to join Elementary Band Teacher Eric Ciarmello for a fun night of music-making and question answering. Students will be able to see, hear, and play many different instruments to get a better understanding of which instrument they enjoy playing the most. This interactive event gives interested students a tangible experience with a variety of instruments prior to joining the 5th Grade Band next year.

If you have any questions prior to the event, please contact Mr. Ciarmello at ECiarmello@rcscsd.org.
