The website "Be a Part of The Band" has terrific videos showing you and your child the different instruments in the band as well as what they sound like. Go to this site --- https://www.bepartofthemusic.org/bpotb/index.html --- in the menu bar, click on "Videos" and it will take you right to them. Or, simply scroll down through the webpage--the videos are at the bottom.
To Be a Part of The Band, you do need to acquire an instrument. Not all new instruments are best and not all used instruments are worst. Mrs. Asquith will provide a list of time-tested, quality instrument brands that are designed for success for Beginning Band students. Often a good-quality used instrument is superior to a poor-quality new instrument. Please wait to purchase or acquire an instrument until you've met with Mrs. Asquith.
After watching the videos, please complete the form below by May 19. Mrs. Asquith, the director, will get in touch with you about trying out the instruments and getting your child started in band next year! Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org contact her if you have any more questions!
