Space still available for elementary band students

Students in fifth and sixth grades in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School Dstrict 191 elementary schools have the unique opportunity to join their school band, and there is still time to join for the 2015-16 school year.

Studies have shown that playing a musical instrument exercises more of the brain than any other activity.  If you’d like your child to have the wonderful opportunity of being a part of the band, please contact your elementary band teacher for more information.  

Beginners’ lessons will start the week of Sept. 21 and are available to all 5th- and 6th-grade students in District 191. Students can learn flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, or percussion.  Your school’s band teacher will be able to tell you which instruments are still available at your child’s school.
