Fifth Grade Beginning Band

Welcome Fifth Graders! You've come to the right place. Getting the Fifth Grade Beginning Band up & going takes many steps. Here is the order of those steps:

  • First week of school - music survey with Mr. Renchen. (This helps me guide you to an appropriate instrument) 
  • First week of school - begin thinking of 1 or 2 instruments you would like to try out. The choices are: flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, or percussion.
  • Second week of school - instrument fittings (this will take about 2-3 weeks because Mr. Renchen will meet with each & every student to ensure the correct instrument) 
  • Tuesday, September 17 - Band Registration Night takes place between 4:00pm-8:00pm in the elementary music room (you & your parent will come for 10 minutes to finalize what instrument you will play in band)
  • The very next week, the instruments get delivered and then we get to play them!!!

I look forward to seeing you all at Band Registration Night on Tuesday, September 17 between 4:00pm-8:00pm in the elementary music room. If you have questions in the meantime, please email me at

       5th Grade Band meets from:
       11:50am - 12:20pm

        The first several weeks of band will have a sporadic schedule. Each student will only have band class once per week. Once we get into November, we will bump up to meeting twice each week and I will send home a paper calendar so parents/students what days are "band days".
