How to Select Band on Your 2019 Course Selection Guide

It is that time of year again (I think it comes earlier each year!!!!)…TIME TO SIGN UP FOR BAND!!!

Course selection guides went home with students yesterday and our curriculum fair is TONIGHT (Thursday, 2/7). The course selection guides look different this year and the band course listing has changed slightly.

There are only two course titles for Instrumental Music for the 2019-20 school year:

  • MARCHING BAND
  • JAZZ BAND

Each course has four levels (I, II, III, IV) that correspond to the students grade level.  9th grade students will select Level I, 10th will select Level II, 11th will select Level III, and 12th will select Level IV.

Marching Band constitutes both the marching and concert seasons.

Jazz Band is only available to students enrolled in Marching Band.  Any student (regardless of what instrument they play in Marching/Concert Band) is eligible to sign up for Jazz Band, too!

Students can almost ALWAYS fit Band into their schedule.  Please contact me directly at cneugent@hoover.k12.al.us if you have questions about how to make it work for your student!

So here is a quick guide on “HOW TO SIGN UP TO FOR BAND”
