Elementary Band

Orchestra and Band Enrollment for 2022-2023 is NOW OPEN!

The Owatonna Instrumental Music Department is excited to announce that your child has the opportunity to join the instrumental music program beginning TODAY for the 2022-2023 school year. The instrumental program consists of Band and Orchestra. Our orchestra program begins the summer before 4th grade (current 3rd graders--this is for you!) and our band program begins the summer before 5th grade. If you wish to perform in band, you need to wait and sign up next year. Dual enrollment is not an option. 

We will provide daily (Monday-Friday) one hour instruction during our two-week summer lesson program held August 8 - 19. During this time, our instructors work with the students on basic beginning techniques. Additional information regarding this will be sent after the enrollment period ends. If your child has a desire to join the orchestra, please fill out this questionnaire and we will be in touch!
