Please watch the following video (20 minutes) before answering the following questions. We will start to narrow down what you might end up playing in our band next year.


We try very hard to assign first choices when we can. There are a total of three things we will look at, as band directors and professional musicians, to select the instrument you are most likely to be successful with. The different factors are your personal choice, where we think you will be most successful based on your physical traits and personality, and balanced instrumentation of the band. We need all instruments to make the team work correctly. Just like Harry Potter and the sorting hat, the instrument often chooses you, but you have a lot to do with the final decision.

Please think carefully as you select below.

If your first choice was percussion, are you willing to film a video of yourself doing percussion specific skills from a tutorial video? This will only happen if more than 12 students choose percussion and the video will be assigned in this google classroom.
