If you signed up your child for Beginner Band Summer Head-Start camp, it goes from Monday, July 10th through Thursday, July 20th. Both weeks it meets Monday through Thursday from 3:00 pm till 4:15 pm in the Hobbs Band room. Please refer to your gold half-sheet for items your child will need for the first day of camp.

If your child is a returning student and signed up for private lessons with Mr. C, you should have received an email the week of July 3rd telling you the assigned lesson time for your child. Lessons are twice per week and are for 3 weeks: July 10th though 27th.

  • Jazz results were emailed as of 5:40 p.m., June 10th. These were emailed only to parents of students who were selected into next school year's Jazz Ensemble. Please check the email address on file with the school. 3 families who did not have an email on file were sent a text.



Great job, all band classes, at your spring band concert performance!

If your returning band student intends on auditioning for Florida All-State Band, you must either take Summer Lessons from Mr. Colo'n or from an area music store that offers private lessons on the All-State requirements. When school starts, it is too late to prepare for All-State auditions which occur in September.



  • Students auditioning for next year's Jazz Ensemble class need to do so by June 2nd. Audition music was handed out the week of May 22nd to students who signed the audition board. If your child makes jazz, you will receive an email by June 10th.



  • Symphonic and Jazz parents - please have your child turn in their full uniform by June 2nd. Make sure it is on a hanger with their first and last name on it. This will help us sort and prepare the uniforms for summer cleaning and for next school year. Thank you!



  • School owned instruments - If your child is returning, all they have to do is fill out a summer instrument checkout sheet in the band room and their practice instrument may remain at home for summer practicing. If your child is going into 9th grade, or is not returning next year, please have them turn in their school-owned instrument to the band room by June 2nd. Make sure their name is on the case.

  • Beginner Selection nights start May 18th for next school year. Please click here to view the details - InstrumentSelection17
