While never a requirement, private instruction (partnered with practice) is one of the best methods for your student to improve their instrument ability. Our Mercer Island Schools Band Boosters has collected a list of private instructors who have been exceptionally supportive of our Mercer Island students.
You may access that list by clicking here.
How can you help?
Do you want to make great friends while impacting this Band experience for your child along with the other 299 students in our program?
Not only are we so deeply grateful for all the help, but this is a fabulous way to build community within our parent population at our high school.
Band parents are the best!

Following the Band
We had some requests regarding how to watch what the MISD Bands are doing over the course of the year. We do try to keep everyone up-to-date with this newsletter and various emails but we have a few other platforms you might be interested in following:

All Island Band Night
Due to this year's AIBN thunderstorm, we went to plan B. We were treated to a wonderful performance by our 5th - MIHS students in the MIHS gym.
On October 3rd, our MIHS Band performed for the Thursday Night halftime show of the Seahawks / Rams game. The band played a favorite song of Paul Allen's "Fire" by Jimi Hendrix, followed by the song "Six Strings" by Paul Allen and the Undertakers, and "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore. And to top it off, the Hawks won!
Our honored guests from Banda Escolar de Guayanilla joined us in our homecoming parade and performance last night. During the school day, our IMS and MIHS band students had the opportunity to learn from their high school students about their culture, lifestyle, band, band practices, and more. Learn more about our continued MI/BEG partnership.
