2019-2020 Band Awards
Current 6th/7th Grade Students
Current 7th Graders: We would love to have you join Jazz Band as your elective choice for the upcoming school year! We are looking for saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, and drum set students to participate. There may be opportunities to learn a new instrument if you do not currently play one of these instruments. Please contact Ms. Kazyaka at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you would like to join this fun class!
Audition Results: If you have not seen the audition results, they are located at www.haysband.com and the password is haysband2020. Symphonic Winds (majority 8th graders) is the top ensemble, Concert Band 1 (mix of 7th and 8th graders) is the second ensemble, and Concert Band 2 (majority 7th graders) is the third ensemble. Everyone will get to participate in pep rallies and everyone has a place in the Hays Band!

Summer Learning Opportunities
Your child can work one on one with a professional on their instrument once a week throughout the summer. This is highly encouraged for students that want to excel on their instrument!
There are several amazing opportunities for virtual band camps throughout the summer. This is a great way for your child to keep playing their instrument and be challenged in a fun way! We will be updating this page throughout the summer.
Check out your SmartMusic account, buy a pop music book, or find something fun online to play. This is the perfect way to have some fun and spend time on your instrument!
