Posted on 05/14/2020

Hello Fifth Grade Parents!


We look forward to starting a new group of band students next year and I would like to invite your child to join our beginning program at Enka Intermediate School (EIS) this Fall.  Please watch the following video to find out more:

At the start of the new school year, EIS will offer one class for beginning band students. This class is typically split with woodwinds/percussion in one room and brass in the other. To get started on the first day of class, please click the link below to fill out the registration form so we can help your child select the instrument that best suits his/her interests, physical structure, and facial structure.

Most instruments can be obtained on a “rent-to-own” plan at many of the area music dealers for around $20-$40 per month. Monies paid as rent go toward purchasing the instrument.


If your child is even slightly interested in the band, please encourage his/her participation. It has been proven that band is one of the few activities that involves both sides of the brain simultaneously. The creative side of the brain is used to listen to the ensemble and play with a balanced sound while the technical side of the brain is used to play the notes and rhythms.


This experience is a key to your child’s mind-to-body connections and will improve their thinking and social skills. Band also teaches lifelong skills of individual/group responsibility, organization, and respect.
