Grade 3 & 4 Instrumental Music - 2013-14

Grades 3 – 5 Instrumental Music – PRE-REGSITRATION Survey

Students in Grades 3 – 5 can enroll in the BPS Instrumental Music program, joining either the orchestra or band programs.  The BPS Instrumental Music Program is nationally recognized for its long history of excellence, and for its high level of participation among the students of Belmont.  Enrolling your child in the Grade 3 and 4 Instrumental Music program provides them with an outstanding musical experience that will have a positive impact on them – socially and academically – over the course of their years in the Belmont Public Schools. 

You will receive much more detailed information about the Instrumental Music Program when school opens in September.  Until then, you can find some basic information about the program by reading the Elementary Instrumental Music “Frequently Asked Questions” sheet, available at http://chenerybands.weebly.com/elementary-level.html.

By completing this very brief Google Survey - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1O4a2ab-OlFyKEOOnrMae6FcTSTs_xQ5vdUuxjc5yLw4/viewform?pli=1 – you will provide the Instrumental Music staff with a rough estimate of how many students will be enrolled, and how many of each instrument will be needed.  This is not a final decision.  Students can still change their mind in the fall, and it is not an official registration for the Instrumental Music program.  This is simply an effort on the part of the music faculty to gather some information.

Important Fall Dates:

Sept. 9, 6:30 pm          Instrument Petting Zoo @ CMS
Sept. 12, 3-7 pm          Instrument Rental Day @ BHS
Oct. 15                        Deadline for Instrumental Music Registration and Fee payment
