5th Grade Band Program

5th Grade Band 

The 5th grade band program is available to any interested 5th grader in the Mercer Island School District. This program is an exceptional opportunity for students offering specific instruction on their chosen instrument, as well as universal musical concepts and skills. Because students come from all four elementary schools, the program stresses the collaborative cooperation and teamwork necessary for group success. This program is also the gateway to the exceptional band programs at Islander Middle School and Mercer Island High School. Most importantly, it’s fun!

The instructional program is provided free of charge by the district. The program is taught before school, 8:15-9:00 AM. All necessary transportation is provided by the MISD transportation department.
