Beginning Band Letter to 6th Grade Parents

Hello, my name is Darrell Boyer and I am the Director of Bands in the De Soto School District. As spring arrives, it is time to recruit students for next years beginning band classes. Over the years, students in the De Soto Band have earned a reputation for excellence in performance. It is our desire to give every child in the De Soto School District the opportunity to join the band program and help us continue this Tradition of Excellence.

Fill out and return the form at https://goo.gl/Xai3kn to your student’s music teacher (Mr. Starwalt or Mrs. Boyer) if your child plans to enroll in band. Included in the form is information that will help the band staff place your child in a like instrument class as a 7th grade student. Each class meets for 50 minutes per day. Periodically throughout the year, the classes will be put together to practice for concerts. As a beginning band student, your child will have no more than 3 required concerts per year.
