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 - Mr. Renchen comes to your class to say hello and talk about Band.

  • First week of school - begin thinking of your top 1 or 2 instruments you think you might enjoy. The choices are: flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, or percussion.

  • Second week of school - Mr. Renchen will meet with all classes & perform on the instruments to demonstrate what they sound like.

  • Third week of school - Students leaning towards joining band will meet with Mr. Renchen a final time to ask questions and hear what their instrument sounds like.

  • Wednesday, September 22 - 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 Wed, Sep 22 between 4:00pm-8:00pm in the elementary music room. If you have questions in the meantime, please email me at renchen.kyle@gcmsk12.org
