Hey Band!

  • Dear Parents:


    Your child finally has the opportunity to do what so many successful students have done before them, Be Part of the Maplewood Comet Band!


    We know that for some of you, this will be your first exposure to music education, and I wanted to take a brief minute to share some information with you.


    This is a time where the both of you can explore the different options and get help choosing the experiences and classes that will help them be successful in high school and beyond. If you after reading these materials you still have questions, please feel free to contact me at any time using the info listed below.


    Music education is more than just playing an instrument. It is immersing your child in a culture of successful students and teachers who care about education. It challenges each child to use the creative side of his brain while, at the same time, learning a foreign language…MUSIC.


    All of the current data clearly states that students involved in music education academically outperform their non-musical counterparts. But, more importantly, studies are showing that music students are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drugs and alcohol.


    Every destination starts with a decision to embark on a journey. Now is the time to start your child in middle school music and the Maplewood Comet Band is the place to do it. We cannot promise that every child will be a musical prodigy, but we can promise they will learn, laugh, and grow along the way.
