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 - 30 minutes and are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please be aware that class size for some instruments is limited. These classes fill and close quickly, so please act now! If scheduling is a problem, please contact me.
Students interested in Percussion are encouraged to sign up for the February 26th Instrument Tryout Date, as Mr. Wylie, our percussion instructor will be on hand for percussion testing.
Instrument Selection dates:
1. February 26 5:00-8:00 PM Students interested in percussion, please select this date.
2. March 10 5:00-8:00 PM
