Join the more than 1,000 students who play an instrument in AASD schools! Instrument registration is going on NOW in all elementary schools. Teachers are handing out information and/or making classroom presentations across the district.

If you are interested, look for information in your school/classroom newsletter or contact the band/strings teacher at your school.

We want every student who wants to play an instrument to be able to do so. NO ONE is turned away from band and strings participation due to family finances. Low- and no-cost instrument rental options are available.

Options for instruments for elementary students
4th grade- strings (violin, viola, cello, bass)

5th grade- strings (violin, viola, cello, bass) or band (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, percussion)

6th grade - strings (violin, viola, cello, bass) or band (flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, percussion)
