Some FAQ's:

Do I have to buy an instrument? No you do not.  It is highly recommended that you rent a good quality instrument from a highly qualified instrument dealer.

I heard that it is expensive to be in band. Is this true?  Renting a clarinet, trumpet, trombone, flute or percussion practice kit is less than $30 per month.  The cost of a book varies on instrument selection. 

What if I am part of a sports team?  Can I still be in band?  Yes, you can!  Middle school years are for finding out what you want to do with your future in high school and beyond.

How can I sign up for band?  Either by completing the registration form sent home with every 5th grader that will be rising to the sixth grade band, or, if you are new to WHMS, tell the person registering you to the school that you are interested.
