Additional Resources

Our Mercer Island Schools Band Boosters has collected a list of resources to help your band student be the best they can be. While never a requirement, private instruction (partnered with practice) is one of the best methods for your student to improve their instrument ability.  Here is a list of private instructors who have been exceptionally supportive of our Mercer Island students.  If you need a new instrument or your instruments repaired, here are some resources for supplies and repairs.  Your soloist or ensemble needs an accompanist?  Here is a list of accompanists available. 

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?

 

Volunteer!

 

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!

Concert Band Intensive

Thank you Dr. Pham, Mr. Holmquist, the many section leads, BSA team, and our directors for an incredible weekend of music and fun.

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. 

Seahawks Performance

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!
