Beginners Info

Question: "When can my child begin playing a band instrument?"

Quite simply, almost any time.   The best time is at the beginning of the school year.  We usually have a September presentation about the instrumental offerings.  In October we generally start beginners on instruments.  But that being said, if the child has:

  • Parental permission
  • Functioning band instrument
  • Lesson Book
  • Willingness to learn

... we can get them going.  Another option may include starting over the summer with a private teacher.  Call or email if you would like to talk about options.
