Band is the “payoff” for all of your child’s hard work. Ensemble performance is an important part of their development as musicians. Fourth Grade Band begins during the second half of the school year and rehearses once a week before school (7:30 am) until our concert in the spring. Fifth Grade Band rehearses all year before school. The fifth Grade Band typically has three performances while the Fourth Grade Band performs at the Spring Concert only. All band rehearsals will be held on the stage at General Wayne Elementary School. It is expected that all children registered for lessons will participate in band. While there may be conflicts with other before school activities, we have always been able to make arrangements with the other teachers to benefit your child’s busy schedule.
