Welcome to the Hudson Band Family We are so excited to have you join the HMS BAND family! No matter what your musical background is, we have a place for your child in the Hudson Band program. Although our Beginner Band is typically made up of 6th grade students, we also welcome 7th & 8th grade students to join our program! We will help you decide which instrument best fits your child, and we will communicate any schedule changes with our wonderful counselors. Please feel free to email your directors with any questions you may have. Heather Becker & Dan Urban
Choosing the Best Instrument Fit We believe that the instrument chooses the child - not the other way around! The best way to select a child's primary band instrument is to have them go through the process of trying out their top 3-5 choices. Your HMS Band directors are experienced and knowledgeable in helping select instruments based on physical and academic needs, strengths, and weaknesses. Traditionally, we decide on instrument choices at one of our scheduled Instrument Selection drives. Due to COVID-19 and shelter in place orders, we have cancelled all in-person selection drives and will be completing them virtually.
Step 4. Secure your instrument and/or supplies before the first day of school. It is important to obtain an instrument from one of our RECOMMENDED MUSIC STORES if at all possible. If you choose to get an instrument elsewhere, please contact us prior to purchasing so we can ensure you are getting a good quality instrument that will last. We can also help you find great, used instruments for very reasonable prices.
