Sign Me Up! How Do I Join?A vital role in your middle school education is your elective class and we would like to present you with the exciting opportunities that are waiting for you in the band program!
The Beginner Band is made up of 6th graders just like you! The 6th grade band classes are scheduled so that the same instrument and instrument groups are put together by class period. This allows for individualized instruction on your chosen instrument and an opportunity to develop strong performance skills during your first year in band! You may choose one instrument from the following list: flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, alto saxophone, cornet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and percussion.
The enjoyment students experience in this program is due largely to the friends and social activities that band offers. Since the classes meet in small groups initially, the students have the chance to meet new friends as well as have others to share in their personal as well as group successes! Since the band program offers a variety of experiences, students also have the opportunity to travel and experience many aspects of life . In the past the high school bands in Denton have gone to New York, Colorado, South Padre Island, Disney World, California, Mexico, and many other fun places!
It all begins this fall! This first year is the most important because it is during this year that you will begin to develop a strong foundation. We are proud of our middle and high school bands and we hope that you will choose to become a part of this exciting program.
A well-rounded education is so important in all our lives and what could enhance it more than the most basic of all studies – the study of music. Music teaches discipline, develops self-confidence, provides a feeling of belonging, and gives each student a feeling of pride and accomplishment . Being a part of this organization not only teaches the importance of working well with others, but helps develop social skills necessary to become a functioning member of a working team. Not all band students become great musicians, but certainly, and most importantly, all become more mature, cooperative, self-disciplined, hard working members of society with an appreciation of the arts.We are proud of our band programs throughout Denton I.S.D. and hope that you will consider becoming a member of the best organization. We have included information that we hope will answer most of your questions. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email us
