Beginner Band Placement Information 2022


    Welcome, Future Rodeo Palms Band parents and students! 


    General Band Placement (non percussion)


    We will be holding instrument selection interviews for 5th grade students on Saturday, April 9th. During this 15 minute interview we will try out several different instruments to find the one that best suits them and where they will be most successful. Our music instrument Vendor, Music and Arts, will be present to set-up your instrument rental onsite and can take care of all of your needs. The Band staff highly encourages you to set-up your rental the same day to avoid any distribution issues in August. So, bring a credit/debit card to start your rental. Payments will only start in August.
