THE OAKLEAF BAND WANTS YOU!

 

***CHOOSE BAND AS YOUR #1 ELECTIVE***

 

 

Be a part of one of the MOST SUCCESSFUL Band Programs in the State. As a future 6th, 7th, or 8th grader in band--- YOU can have the opportunity to perform for thousands of people.

 

Including: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS, FESTIVALS AND CONCERTS throughout the year.

 

 

I am looking for students that DO NOT PLAY AN INSTRUMENT!

I will help you find the right instrument for you to play in band!

THERE IS NO AUDITION FOR BEGINNING BAND!

 

When school starts, I will give each student a music evaluation & fitting evaluation to see which instrument fits them the best. J It will be fun!

 

IF you DO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT--- call me/email me ASAP, and I will hear you play and decide which BAND is for you:

BEGINNING BAND, INTERMEDIATE BAND, CONCERT BAND,

PEP BAND, DRUMLINE, AND/OR JAZZ BAND

 

 

I am also looking for students that have been taking PIANO LESSONS, DRUMSET LESSONS, or GUITAR LESSONS for over 5 YEARS--- Maybe YOU QUALIFY to be in the JAZZ BAND! (audition required)

 

 

*******THE OAKLEAF BAND PROGRAM IS HUGE!!!*******

THERE IS LIMITED SPACE TO FILL, SO BE THE FIRST TO SIGN UP.

 

IF YOU WANT TO BE IN BAND--- PUT BAND DOWN AS YOUR #1 CHOICE

Parents--- There is an ACADEMIC and FINANCIAL commitment when you sign your student up for band. There are State Standards for Band that must be completed & there are REAL grades earned in Band. A detailed practice schedule will need to be added to your family schedule so that the student does not fall behind in Band. Please visit the band website for more details.
