During a try-on, students will get to make and create sounds on up to three different instruments. At this time, teachers will be assessing your child’s physical suitability for the instruments and will guide them in making an instrument choice.
Appointments generally average 10-15 minutes per instrument for Band and Orchestra. No try-on is needed for choir this year. Please watch this video if you are interested in choir. Students interested in band or orchestra will sign-up for the instrument best suited for them at the end of their try-on.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!!!
Percussion Try-On Information
Percussion enrollment is limited based on the total number of students enrolling in 6th grade band. Percussion students will be selected by recommendation at the conclusion of all three try-on sessions. All students interested in playing percussion will be required to try-on at least 2 other instruments. If a student’s first choice is percussion at the conclusion of the individual try-on, they will be placed on the percussion interest list. The student will sign-up for their second choice. At the conclusion of all three try-on sessions, those students recommended to play percussion will be notified by email and phone. Those not recommended for percussion will remain on their second choice of instrument.
