Beginner Band Update!


Check Out The Band Website!

This is your one stop shop for all things Beginner Band. The website will be updated on a regular basis and will house our band calendar, student/parent handouts, event information, supplies needed, Google Classroom instructions, director contact, private lesson information, etc.

Important Information Regarding Instruments and Supplies!

  • All Beginner Band students must have their instrument and required supplies ordered by Friday, September 11th. Please visit the Band Website for your student's required instrument supply list.

  • School Owned Instruments: Students who play French Horn, Baritone, and Tuba will have a school owned instrument checked out to them at an "Instrument Pick-Up Night" coming soon! Students who play a school owned instrument are required to pay a $150 Instrument Use Fee each year that covers maintenance, cleaning, and any repairs that are needed. A $50 deposit is due at the time you and your student pick up their instrument at the "Pick-Up Night." You will also receive an Instrument Contract Form at pick-up. Students playing school owned instruments will still need to purchase a Supply Package from Ellis County Music. Below, you will find video instructions and links to the appropriate form.

  • Student Owned Instruments: All other instruments must be rented or purchased by the student and their family. The Kennedale Band uses Ellis County Music in Waxahachie for all of their band needs and supplies. This is the company we recommend all of our first time band families to use when renting or purchasing their instrument and other supplies. Below you will find a short video, flyer and links to Ellis County Music that show you how to rent an instrument and get your needed supplies.

  • Band Binder Pickup: Along with the "Instrument Pick-Up Night," we ask that all other band students come by as well to pick up their Band Binder. This binder is stuffed with material that we will use to get started virtually and will provide a uniform way for each student to organize their band material. This drive by pick-up process will have little to no contact between directors and families and all individuals will be asked to stay in their vehicle as they drive through the pick-up line. The cost of the binder is $5. This covers the cost of the binder and printing (usually between 25-30 pages!)
