Beginning Band - August 26, 2022

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the Band Family Picnic!! We loved getting to see our band students in a more casual environment and meeting so many of our new band parents.

  3. Pay the band fee on your student's CHARMS account. Click here for a video tutorial.

  4. If your student is using a school-owned instrument, pay the instrument rental fee on Online School Fees. This should now be open and active. School-owned instruments are oboe, bassoon, french horn, euphonium, and tuba.

 

Private Lessons


We highly recommend all students in Beginning Band sign up for private lessons. Private lessons are a great way to progress on your instrument with the assistance of a master teacher who plays that same instrument. While tutoring in a core class might only be to catch up or erase deficits in the learning process, private lessons are for everyone. Typically, the top musicians in the band program are ones that are in private lessons!


This is the time to sign up. Our teachers are in high demand and teach across several different campuses and districts. Lesson times are first come first serve, so sign up ASAP. You can sign up by reaching out to the lesson teachers directly via email, which can be found at our website HERE. You can also email Mr. Jenson at jensonm@friscoisd.org.


If you were enrolled in lessons last year, make sure you reach out to your lesson teacher to get on their schedule for this year.

 

Instruments and Supplies


All band students need an instruments and supplies in order to be successful in band this year. If you have not ordered them, please click on the following link for directions on how to do so.
