Welcome to Middle School Band and the Summer Beginner Band Lessons with Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools Community Education. If you have any questions related to the Summer Band Program, we recommend you attend our information night with the Summer Band Instructors and Instrument Vendors at Twin Oaks Middle School on May 23 from 5:00-7:00 pm. We highly recommend meeting with one of the instrument vendors to obtain an instrument for your child to play. If you were unable to meet with a vendor and your child needs an instrument, please arrange to rent or purchase your instrument ASAP. Here are three companies that you can arrange that with. PLEASE NOTE: Students must arrange for an instrument prior to the start of Summer Band Lessons.1. Groth Music - (952) 884-47722. Schmitt Music - (612) 238-99303. Eckroth Music - 651-704-9654Please bring 2 reeds to all lessons (if your instrument requires them). Please purchase the book, Accent on Achievement Book 1, and bring it to all lessons.The first week of lessons will be 1 hour long. Weeks 2-5 lessons will be 30 minutes at the scheduled times. Example: 8:00 and 8:30 clarinet lessons will meet together from 8:00-9:00 during week one.If you/your child were not assigned to play this instrument, you will be cancelled from this lesson slot and we will attempt to contact you to reschedule a lesson time for your assigned instrument. Lessons slots are subject to availability.
