In May, all 5th graders will be individually evaluated or "fitted" to an instrument that we feel makes the most sense for the students. This decision is based off of many factors including: Physical Student Size, dental structure, student interest, and the ability for a student to make a sound during fitting.
Your student should bring home a letter informing you of what instruments they should choose from. However, if your student was absent or you have just moved to Flushing, you'll need to select this instrument on your own or contact a director.
The resources below are for families to get more information on the fitting process. Please take some time to explore each instrument offering!
Instruments are vastly different and selecting the correct one to fit a student can be challenging. Please know that with our circumstances we will always work to have your student on an instrument they will enjoy and can succeed on! Therefore, any instrument changes will be facilitated by the directors.
We offer the following instrument selections in our elementary band program. As students progress into middle school - more instruments are introduced and available (including percussion)
