TRY OUT INSTRUMENTS

This involves all fourth grade students and will occur during their regularly scheduled music class. ALL STUDENTS love instruments. Whether or not a long commitment is in their future is irrelevant. Please discuss this with your child and feel free to ask questions. Please allow your child to play an instrument, even if they are just "trying it out."
