All Band Fees are due on October 3rd!

The class fee for Band is $35.00 for the school year. This pays for Smart Music enrollment as well as the required performance shirt, and entry to a variety of events.

The cost to rent an instrument from Carson Middle School is $75.00 for the school year. This pays for a professional cleaning over the summer and covers normal wear and tear. Families who have qualified for the Free-and-Reduced Lunch program through the District are given first priority.

Our First Concert is on October 6th!

Who: All Band Students

What: Fall Concert
