Beginner Band Registration Approaching In Pine City
The Pine City Schools Music Department is currently registering new fifth and sixth grade students for their award-winning band program. Lessons are available free to all students at Pine City Elementary and St. Mary’s School, and area home school families.
Registration is Tuesday, September 13 from 2:30 to 6:30pm at Pine City Elementary School. At this time parents can schedule lessons and learn more about renting an instrument. If families are unable to attend registration, contact director Brad Mariska by emailing or calling 320-629-4129. Parents should not purchase an instrument before the registration date.
Rental programs are available for families of all income levels. Says Mariska, “I am very proud of the contributions the school administration and local residents have made to supplement our instrument inventory. Families who might not be able to otherwise afford buying an instrument have several affordable options for acquiring an instrument, which they can learn more about by attending registration on September 13.”
Over 350 students in grades 5-12 played in the band program last year, when Pine City was named one of the “Best Communities for Music Education in America” by the NAMM Foundation for the second year in a row.
