Honor Band Information

There are a variety of Honor Band opportunities around the state available at every grade level. Usually I am only allowed to nominate a certain number, and of those only some are chosen.

My practice is to first find out who is interested, and from there I choose our top students. Be sure to let me know well before the registration deadline so you can be considered.

FYI: The fortunate/unfortunate truth of the matter is... the less "popular" an instrument, the easier it is to get into an honor band. For example, a couple years ago we had an 8th grade french horn player get into UWS honor band while a 10th grade flute player didn't make it. Most non-auditioned groups place the oldest students until filled. That year there were so many flute players that only 10th graders with special distinctions made it in.
