Summer Music!

summer band

The Poudre School District Summer Music Program is open to any student currently in 5th grade through graduating seniors.

There are three levels of classes offered:

Beginning - Designed for students who have never played an instrument before.  These classes are generally taken by students entering 6th grade in the fall, but from time to time older students will want to learn a second instrument - or may have missed joining band or orchestra as a 6th grader.  We do not allow students younger than 5th grade (current grade) to participate without special allowance.

Intermediate - Designed for students who have played an instrument for 1 or 2 years - In general, students who will still be in middle school next year.  From time to time, students who are going into 6th grade who have taken private lessons, or received other instruction are allowed to participate in the intermediate program.

Advanced - Designed for students who will be in high school next year - or for those students who have just graduated.

Classes are taught by professional music educators – often, the teachers students will have either in middle school or high school.  For that reason, we recommend that students attend the site closest to their home school – students will not only get to know their future music teachers but also many of the students who will be in their band and orchestra classes in the fall.
