2020-2021 Plano ISD 6th Grade Band Instrument Selection (Wilson MS)
Dear Future Band Members and Family Members,

Thank you so much for your patience as we try to find new and inventive ways to place our future band students on instruments. The safety of our staff, students, and families is our highest priority. This year, we are electing to gather information through this brief questionnaire which will help us to select the best instrument for your success.

You will need a ruler or tape measure to complete Section 5 of this questionnaire.

In Section 6 of this questionnaire, you will be asked to watch a series of videos that demonstrates all of the instruments we offer in the band program. We are asking that you please watch all the video with your child before you select your instrument choices.

Please remember that EVERY instrument is necessary for the band. Very much like any sports team, we need each position filled in order to have a complete team. Our directors will work to place each student on an instrument based on the following criteria: student preference, physical attributes, your questionnaire responses, band instrumentation needs, and an online meeting to be scheduled by your director(s).

Because we normally test students in person and this online system is new to all of us, we may discover that a student has been placed on an instrument that they will not be successful. An example could be that a child's hands are just too big or too small for a certain instrument, or their facial structure prohibits them from making a characteristic sound. Because we want the best for our students, all 6th grade instrument placements will be tentative until we meet in person. If a student must change instruments a schedule change may or may not be needed. We will do our very best to make your instrument placement correctly. We want you to be as successful as possible!

All of the information collected in this questionnaire will be kept private and confidential.

We will contact you with your instrument choice as soon as all students have completed this questionnaire and directors have completed virtual meetings with all band members. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to a wonderful year with you all!!!
