5th Grade Band 2021-22 Info

WELCOME TO BAND!!! I am so excited to work with the incoming band students next year. I have a few items below that I would like to share so that we can get of to a quick and successful start next year. As always, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have after reading the following: We will be hosting a summer quick start for all incoming 5th grade band students. Students will learn assembly, care and maintenance, fundamentals, and beginning notes. The schedule is as follows: Aug 9,10,11
9-9:45 Clarinet, Trumpet
10-10:45 Alto Sax, Trombone, Percussion
11-11:45 Flute, French Horn 1) Sign Up for Remind Texts
Text @cavband29 to the number 81010 2) Rent an Instrument
Because we are choosing an instrument without playing on it, I would HIGHLY RECCOMEND renting and instrument for the first 12 weeks. At the conclusion of that time you can rent to own, purchase, or return if you find another instrument to purchase. In some rare cases, I may ask a student to try a different instrument if I feel it would be a better fit.
*Go to
*Select Band
*Select Coldwater Exempted Village and Coldwater Elementary
*Select either flute, clarinet, trumpet, alto saxophone, French horn, trombone or percussion and your band method book Tradition of Excellence
*Choose “School” for your delivery option and instrument and all supplies will be waiting for your student at the band room on the first day of the summer band start up!
