Welcome to Instrumental/Band

Mr. Griffis

Students who enter fourth grade have the opportunity to play a band instrument which includes the flute, clarinet, oboe, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and drum and mallet percussion instruments. 

Lessons are held once a week for thirty minutes on a rotating basis which includes small homogeneous grouping. Band meets once a week at Truman and at Western Elementary after school from 3:15-4:00 PM. Students may enter Band once they achieve a proficient level in their book. Transportation home is the responsibility of the parent at the conclusion of rehearsal.

Concerts are held three times a year, once in the winter before holiday break, our district instrumental music concert, and our annual Spring concert. For exact dates, please see the district calendar.
