Spring 2017 Class Info for Parents

Summit Band

Take a break from the academic day.
Create music with your classmates.
Perform for friends and family.
Learn the magic behind the music.


Beginning in Third Grade, students have the opportunity to join the Summit Afternoon Academy Band. Students can choose from a variety of instruments. Research shows that the study of a musical instrument improves a child’s ability to reason, focus and comprehend in all other disciplines. Social skills are also instilled through band classes, contributing to children’s healthy development.

Band students receive instruction one day per week based on the instrument they play. All lessons are on campus in the Music Room in the Arts and Technology Building. Musical styles range from Classical to Folk to Jazz. All students will meet as a combined band once per month on the Delayed Start Wednesdays. The Afternoon Academy Band performs a few pieces in the Band & Chorus Concerts in December and May. Upper School students have the opportunity to play together during the school day.

Band is open to new and returning students. Instruments may be rented at local music stores.

Students in 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades are invited to attend an Instrument Zoo at 6:00pm on December 8 in the Loma Hopkins Theatre. Much like a petting zoo, students will have a chance to learn about our band instruments and even try to play them. (Instruments will be cleaned between each use.)

Band instruction includes note spelling, rhythm training, instrumental skills, harmonizing, and aural development. Lessons are designed to meet the needs of both the new student and the returning player. Musical selections will be taken from the Essential Elements Book and sheet music. There will be a daily home practice requirement of 15-25 minutes depending on age.

We hope each student selects the best instrument for him or her. To ensure the best fit, parents of new students should contact our band director before committing to an instrument.

There is a four-week cancellation period for the AF AC Band. If a student enrolls in Band, the family may cancel within the first 8 sessions and receive a prorated refund based on number of classes attended and administrative costs. Cancellations should be made in writing by email, fax, or letter. After the 8th class the family is responsible for the entire fee regardless of student attendance.

The Summit Band and all Afternoon Academy classes are open to students from any school.
