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 the First Instrument Tryout Date (February 28), if possible.
This is the Second Instrument Selection Date.
March 6 - 4:30-7:00 PM
Instrument Tryouts will take place at Downing Middle School in the Band Hall
(entrance is off of Waketon Rd.)
