Instruction on string instruments is offered through the orchestra program. Instruction on woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments is offered through the band program. For a description of the elementary instrumental music program, please click here.
In August and September 2016, all fourth-grade and fifth-grade students will have the opportunity to enroll in the District 205 Instrumental Music Program. Students who are continuing into fifth grade will be automatically re-enrolled in the fall. Parents may pay the District fee online at the District Webstore or pay by check in September.
Current third-grade and fourth-grade students who are not in band or orchestra will be able to register in August and September. The three-step registration process is designed to give every student the opportunity to select an appropriate beginning instrument. Registration must be completed by speaking with a director by phone or at a registration night.
