Elementary Bands 

Any 6th grade student at Boswell, Otterbein, Prairie Crossing, and Sacred Heart Elementary Schools are eligible to be part of the beginning band. This group begins their musical journey by learning about their chosen instruments, learning to read music and musical symbols, and learning the art of musical performance.

6th Grade Practice at Boswell
During the year, students will receive instruction during the school day once per week. Students will have band depending on what class they are in and when their elementary music class meets. The weekly schedule for 2019-2020 will be:

Monday: Otterbein

Tuesday: Sacred Heart & Prairie Crossing

Wednesday: Sacred Heart

Thursday: Otterbein & Boswell

Friday: Boswell 

6th Grade Band students will come together twice per year to perform alongside the rest of the BC Band Department. These combined performances will be at Benton Central Jr./Sr. High School. They include the Mid-Semester Concert in March and the Spring Fine Arts Festival in May. Students may also give selected performances at their respective elementary schools during the year.  

It is never too late to sign up! If you are interested in having your child as a part of band, please contact Mr. Richardson.
