VanderMolen Band

The overall purpose of the band program is to begin the study of a musical instrument and experience the pleasure of music through playing that instrument.  Students develop self-confidence, responsibility, self-discipline, and teamwork.  In addition, research shows there is a strong connection between learning an instrument and improved test scores and grades.

VanderMolen Band classes are 30 minutes long, twice a week in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR).  All classes are during the school day and students are required to make-up any missed classwork, and practice at home. Students may also attend classes during their off-track days.  Grades 5 and 6 only, Beginning and Advanced.

There will be Band Performances at Fall 
and Spring Assemblies for all levels, and Evening Performances for the Advanced Band members.
