| 5th Grade Band|
Fifth grade is the year that students can join the Mesick Band Program.
Student can choose the Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, or
Percussion to learn. Students begin the year by learning the instruments of the
band, having a chance to try out various instruments, and choosing an
instrument that they will be most successful at. During the second week of
school, all fifth grade students and parents are invited to an informative
meeting and instrumental rental night - allowing students to officially join
the band program!
The Fifth Grade Band teaches basic musical notation, playing techniques,
team work, and individual responsibility throughout the year. Students perform
two concerts during the year: the elementary winter concert in December and the
annual Spring Collage Band Concert at the end of April. Band is scheduled at
the end of the school day for 30 minutes. Woodwind instruments meet every week
on Monday and Wednesday; Brass and Percussion meeting every week on Tuesday and
Thursday; and all students rehearse together on Fridays.
