Beginning Band and Orchestra
Massapequa Instrumental Music Program
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian of 3rd Grade Students,
Your child will become eligible for participation in the Massapequa Instrumental Music Program upon completion of the third grade. We strongly recommend that all students who show potential and interest should enroll in this program.
The orchestra and band teachers will be meeting with grade 3 students in the coming weeks. They will discuss whether your child wishes to be in orchestra or band and make their professional recommendation for an instrument that would be best suited for your child. Children will be given the opportunity to see different instruments on that day. A “Frequently Asked Questions” flyer is attached for your information.
There will be an informational meeting for parents of beginner students on Thursday, June 1st at 7:00pm at the McKenna Elementary School Auditorium. The Instrumental Music Program will be explained and there will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions of the instrumental music staff. I look forward to seeing your child take part in this exciting musical adventure.
Vincent Green, Director of Fine and Performing Arts
