Additonal Events:
Beginning Band for incoming 6th grade Students

I know this year's beginning band setup process is much different than last year - I have been working with Marshall Music for a very CUSTOMIZED beginning band process. We feel this setup will work in order to reach as many students and parents as possible. This process will allow for students to start band with instruments on the very first day of school next fall. Thanks in advance for your help and support of the Comstock Band Program.

SIXTH GRADE BEGINNING BAND TIMELINE
Spring 2015 (For 5th Graders this year)

Listening Survey test has already been administered in February. If students missed the listening test, no problem - they should continue through the process as listed below.

May 14:
FITTING AT BOTH NEMS AND STEM. NEMS begins at 9am and STEM begins at 2pm (according to what Marshall Music has set up with your building). Students will be assigned an instrument to play based on physical characteristics, their instrument choices, and how well they are able to make an initial sound on a particular instrument.

BAND BOOSTER MEETINGS
You, as a parent, are automatically members of the Comstock Band Boosters. We ask you to at least commit to one meeting per year to keep updated and informed of Booster activities and events. For those who would like to become more involved, we are always looking for volunteers to work at the inside concession stands at high school home games, chaperone bus trips, and others. The Band Boosters meet at 7p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in the HS Colt Center.
