There will be a very important meeting for all prospective beginning band members on Wednesday night, August 29th at 7:00 p.m. in the music room. Details regarding the band program at St. Margaret Mary will be discussed at this time, including costs, time commitment, instrument rental, and general band program information. Students will also be able to try the various band instruments out at this time in order to determine what may be the best fit for them. NO prior music experience necessary. Every study ever done on the subject concludes that being in a band program helps to raise math, science, and SAT score, as well as building self-esteem and teamwork. Don't miss out on this worthwhile investment in your student.
