Absences and cancelations:
Absences: Absences for a scheduled school related conflict (for example: mandatory field trip or school-related event not inclusive to sports or extra curricular activities) will not be charged, but all other absences will be charged for teacher's time.

Band is a wonderful opportunity for students to bond with classmates, meet new friends, develop personal discipline, build self esteem, and begin the practice of an art form that will deliver joy and satisfaction from their school days to beyond. Beginning Band is for students with little to no experience, while intermediate students will have completed at least one full year in band.
The school has a limited number of instruments to loan to families. There are also several local companies to rent instruments from at a reasonable cost.
Students do not have to choose an instrument prior to bands’ start, where they’ll be given the opportunity to explore the instruments before making a decision. Requests for instrument loans should be directed to email@example.com.
