    Lenape Band 5
    Welcome to the Lenape Band 5 Home Page.

    Lenape Band 5 Program:

    Instrumental Lessons:

        Instrumental students have one lesson a week in small group sessions with similar instruments. These lessons are rotated each week so students do not miss the same subject weekly. Students are responsible for being on time for their lesson, remembering their lesson and having all materials for their lesson.

    Band Rehearsals:

        Once students have a basic foundation on their instrument, all students will assemble together starting in January. Students will rehearse concert band music to perform in a spring concert.

    Practice Expectations:

        Because true success begins with consistent practice at home, we require students to practice at least 20 minutes a day 5 days a week for the beginning of the year then extend their practice time to 30 minutes a day 5 days a week by the 2nd half of the year. Students will have a practice log and it is to be signed by a parent/Guardian every week. These are responsibilities of the student and requirements of the band program.

    Concerts: There will be two main concerts per academic year, a winter concert and a spring concert.
