After School Band Program — Information for Musicians and Parents
Welcome to our 15th year of After-School Band!
We plan to have 40 band classes meeting weekly throughout the 26 elementary schools. Because of the successful fundraising last year, we have granted funds to FUSD to pay for 25 weeks of instruction. Band classes will begin in mid-October and end in May.
How to Select a Band Instrument
How to Select an Instrument – The Pros & Cons of Each Band Instrument shares lots of information to introduce the different instruments and help your students pick an instrument they can enjoy playing successfully.
After-School Band T-shirts
FEF would like to sell T-shirts to our band students, their families, and supporters. The program is in need of a volunteer(s) to serve as the T-shirt coordinator(s).
T-shirt sales will be on hold until a volunteer(s) steps up to help FEF with this great way to promote and celebrate the band program. If you are interested, please contact FEF at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you can help
Parents and students are required to download the After School Band Policies document, read it, sign it and return it to the band instructor at the first day of band class. Download Policies
Band Instructor websites
Some of our band directors keep web sites to keep you informed of class activities.
Everyone Loves a Parade!
Students in the After-School Bands are invited to participate in community parades during the year. Check our parades page to learn about this year's parade, one is scheduled in November and the second parade will be in July 2017.
