This program consists of specialized music instruction designed to provide students with a positive, encouraging musical experience during the summer when they can work in a more relaxed environment than during the school year. The goal of the program is to help students develop musical and technical skills by playing in a band setting. Granby’s Summer Band is for students entering 5th through 9th grade with at least one year of playing experience. Students will perform an informal concert on the Friday of each week (weather permitting). We will be strictly following all CDC mandated COVID-19 precautions, including the use of bells covers, spacing, and daily frequent cleaning.
Any older high school aged student interested in being a volunteer should email Mrs. Warner for an application (or see Mr. Neri for a hard copy). All volunteer applications must be submitted by June 15th (space is limited).
Sarah Warner (Instrumental Teacher at Wells Road School), Mark Neri (Band Director, Middle School), and Colleen Mello (GMMS Band Director)
