As I mentioned last week, our Band Instrument Rental Night is tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Skyridge cafeteria. Please see below for more information about tonight’s event:
What is Instrument Rental Night?
This is an optional event where families of 6th Grade Beginning Band come to the school to rent their band instrument and purchase their band book and other needed supplies. Families are welcome to procure an instrument however they'd like, but I hope this is a convenient way for families to get everything they need to start off in Beginning Band. Beacock Music will be the music vendor at this evening's Rental Night and will have instruments for rent as well as accessories for purchase.
What supplies do we need for Beginning Band?
After an instrument has been assigned, you can get all the supplies that you need at the Instrument Rental Night. If you are going elsewhere, make sure to take a look at the supply list on the band website.
Do we have to be at the school for the entire event?
No! This is a drop-in type event, so as soon as you get an instrument rented and accessories purchased, you're welcome to leave.
My child wasn't able to try out all the instruments he/she wanted. Should we still come to the Instrument Rental Night?
Absolutely. I'll be there along with the folks at Beacock who can help with instrument tryouts. Please assure students that if they don't get to try out everything in class, they'll have an opportunity at the Instrument Rental Night.
My child played in Band last year at his/her former school. What should we do?
There are a variety of things we can do: please have the student come see Mr. Sanchez and we can talk about the options.
I hope this helps clear up any questions you might have. If there's anything else I can do to help, please get in touch.
