Beginning Band Informational Meetings

Herget Middle School Gymnasium

(1550 Deerpath Rd, Aurora, IL 60506)

Parents should attend one of these two meetings:

Tuesday, December 7 at 7:00pm   or   Saturday, December 11 at 9:00am

Band directors will demonstrate each band instrument and give detailed information about 6th Grade Beginning Band.  At this meeting, parents will sign up for a day and time for their student to meet their future band teacher and discuss their instrument choices.


Instrument Selection Conferences

Held during school at your elementary school.

5th Grade students meet individually with their future band director to select instruments they are interested in playing.  A written summary will be sent home after each meeting.  Parents do not need to attend, but they may come if they like.


Instrument Reservation Day

Jefferson Middle School Gymnasium

(1151 Plum St, Aurora, IL 60506)

Saturday, January 22 from 9:00am-2:00pm

  • The process should take about 15-30 minutes, depending on how busy it is when you arrive.

  • Parents reserve their student’s instrument and purchase necessary supplies.

  • Important! Please bring your student’s Chromebook or a cell phone to reduce sharing of devices during the checkout process.

  • We strongly encourage you to come to this event hosted by Music and Arts, our preferred vendor. The supplies and instruments you purchase or rent on this day have been carefully selected by our band teachers. If your instrument is not reserved on this day, it will be your responsibility to complete the instrument rental process on your own prior to the start of 6th grade.
