“I believe everyone is born with musical ability. Now is the time to nurture that ability. Participation in band provides an avenue for creativity and self-expression that adds richness to the quality of life,” states band director Joseph Peloza.
Recent studies have also shown, on average, students who study a musical instrument score higher on standardized tests and out perform their peers in academic courses.
To enroll in band for next year, we invite you and your child to attend instrument fittings on Monday, Feb. 4, at Edgewood Middle School from 4 p.m. to 7:30 pm. During these informal fittings, each child will have a hands-on opportunity to try out any instrument they might be interested in playing. The goal of the evening meeting is to choose the instrument best suited to your child.
We look forward to meeting you at the Band Fitting Night. We anticipate the beginning of another great seventh grade band. Please call 574-371-5037 or email Lori Owens at email@example.com to schedule an instrument fitting appointment for your student.
