Welcome to the Downing Band, a feeder program to the Marcus High School Band!!
It is very important that all new band students be enrolled on a specific instrument so that they are pre-registered for the correct class. Therefore, each student, accompanied by a parent, must meet with a band director to determine the most suitable instrument.
Appointments usually take about 20 minutes and are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please be aware that class size for some instruments is limited. These classes fill and close quickly, so please act now! If you see a time that you need to come and all the slots are full, please contact us and we'll find a time that works with you.
Students interested in Percussion are encouraged to sign up for this Instrument Tryout Date (February 28).
Instrument Selection date:
February 28 - 4:30-7:00 PM
Instrument Tryouts will take place at Downing Middle School in the Band Hall
(entrance is off of Waketon Rd.)
