March 16 

The meeting for rising 6th band members and their parents has been postponed. When it is allowed and safe to do so, we will hold the meeting.

February 24

The instrument tryouts were completed on February 22nd. It is not too late to join band; however, the percussion section is full. Students can still join if they are interested in flute, clarinet, trumpet, or trombone. You need to contact Ms. Petersen for a 15-minute appointment to try out the 4 instruments. After making a decision together, then she will give you a packet with the next steps and let the registrar know into which class to place your child.

It is highly suggested that you rent an instrument but do not do so until August 1st from a reputable music vendor. The closest music store to Bailey Middle School is Music & Arts Center in Huntersville.


If your child wants to attend the optional, free group lessons on August 18 (flute at 5:45 p.m., clarinet at 6:30 p.m., percussion at 7:30 p.m.) or August 20 (trumpet at 6:00, trombone at 6:45), he/she will need an instrument for that night.
