Registration and rental will be on Thursday, September 6th in the Schiesher Small Gym from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. Please come at your convenience any time between these hours. Please be prepared to fill out a rental agreement and pay rental fees at the registration. This open house type of registration will allow us to talk with all interested parents and students regarding final instrument selection.
Small group instruction is furnished free of charge by the school. Your child will need an instrument, an instruction book, miscellaneous supplies (i.e. oil, reeds) and a music stand. For your convenience, arrangements have been made with Quinlan & Fabish Music Company to provide a low cost rental program whereby you may rent an instrument for your child. They offer a very affordable 4-month introductory rental program. We have worked with Quinlan & Fabish for many years and strongly feel that the quality of their rental instruments is second to none. Through the years, our experience has proven many times over that the quality of an instrument is an important factor in the success of the student.
If you have a used instrument at home you would like your child to play, please bring it to the registration. It may need to be sent to a repair shop before the start of lessons. Even if you already have an instrument, you will still need to acquire the music stand, instruction book and miscellaneous supplies on registration night. If you are not sure you can afford to rent an instrument, we can help. Please speak to the band directors about renting a school-owned instrument.
If you are unable to make it to registration, please call Mr. Schraub at 630-493-8377 by Friday, September 7th to register your child over the phone or through e-mail.
We CANNOT wait to get started! Please call or e-mail if you have any questions!
