Band

Students in grades four through eight may enroll in the Instrumental Music Program. The band instructor is Mrs. Jennifer Weglein. Lessons are held during school hours, once a week for one half hour. Band lesson times rotate so that students have their band lesson at a different time each week. It is the responsibility of each student to contact the teacher of his or her academic subject(s) for any missed work. Full band practice is held after school once a week for the advanced students.  The school has contracted with the Instrumental Music Program for this program.

Please feel free to contact Jennifer Weglein at slsbands@gmail.com

Band registration form can be downloaded.  Registration and tuition needs to be mailed to the Instrumental Music Program, PO Box 418, West Friendship, MD 21794.   www.instrumentalmusicprogram.org/
