Students should be of class age by 8/1/17. However, we know that age doesn't always match up with ability, so we've allowed a "Grace Period" (AKA wiggle room) for age cut offs. If your child will turn the required class age by October 1, you may choose to enroll your child in that class. But if your child is unable to succeed, either musically or behaviorally, the teacher has the authority to place him in the younger class.
Students who are 9 years old AND who have had 2 years of Prep may join Beginner Band or Treble Choir.
Students who are 9 years old may audition for Beginner Band and may be placed in the band at the discretion of the instructor.
