What is it?
The instrument selection day is for incoming 6th graders who have chosen band.  The FMS band directors will guide each individual student through instrument trials to determine the best instrument for your beginner musician.  The testing process should take about 15 minutes per student, but please be prepared to wait your turn as this is a one on one process with the band directors.  Also, and adult must accompany every student in order to review all the details and gather all important information about the upcoming musical journey.
 
What is the next step?
Once you have worked with an FMS director to determine your instrument, Music & Arts rental specialists will be on hand to help you reserve your instrument and accessories for the fall.  We can help you set up all your instrument needs on the spot so that all your child has to do the first day of band is show up and have fun!  We have great rental options that are all approved by the FMS directors and are happy to help!
 
Who to contact?
If you absolutely cannot attend the times listed above, or if you have any questions concerning the process, please contact Mr. Killingsworth atBrennan_killingsworth@allenisd.org
