Who can participate in Band?
Band is offered to our 5th & 6th grade students during special area classes.  Our 5th & 6th grade band students perform two concerts throughout the year, a Christmas concert and a Spring Concert.

Can I join the BAND at VANCE if I did not particpate my 6th grade year?
6th grade students who did not particpate during their 6th grade year are still elligible to play in the BAND in middle school.  Those students would need to sign up for beginning band. 

How can I join the BAND? 

4th grade students will have an opportunity at the end of the school year to test instruments that they may be interested in playing.  Band directors will dicuss what type of instrument is the most natural fit to guide students toward success.  A few instruments categories include: horn instruments, reed instruments and percussion.
