This program, administered throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford by FUTURE MUSICIANS, INC. (FMI), allows students in grades 4-8 the opportunity to receive a group lesson once per week in any of the brass, woodwind or percussion instruments. The scheduling of these lessons is rotated each week so a student never misses the same class more than one time per month.
Students who register become part of either the BEGINNING BAND (which practices once per week during school hours) or ADVANCED BAND (which practices once per week after school). Besides our school bands, the bands of local Catholic schools are often combined and more advanced students are afforded the opportunity to perform with regional and statewide “All Star” bands.
The fee and registration for this program is administered through FMI. Interested parents will be invited to a special informational evening meeting early in the year.
