    Council Rock Music Department 

    September 15, 2020 

    Dear Parents/Guardians, 


    Welcome back to a new school year!  This year your child will be eligible to participate in the Instrumental Music Program in Council Rock. The music department offers instruction in woodwind, brass, string and percussion instruments. For students entering grade 4 this is the first year you may start a woodwind, brass, or percussion instrument.  Students will be able to choose from the following instruments:  flute, oboe, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, and snare drum.  Students in 4th grade are also still allowed to start a string instrument.  For students in grades 5 and 6 it is never too late to start an instrument and you may choose from both band and strings.  


    This year we have created an interactive website to introduce the instruments.  Here is the link https://www.crsd.org/Page/59846.  This will be a great way for you and your child to listen to all the instruments together before your child makes their instrument choice.  

    Students who enroll in the instrumental program will receive a virtual small group lesson once a week during the school day.  All instrumental students, both hybrid and 100% virtual students, will have synchronous virtual lessons.   The lesson time is rotated on the schedule so that the same time slot is not affected each week.   Lessons will begin the second week of October, and students will receive a schedule before the first lesson. Instrument classes will remain virtual for all students until further guidance is given by the district.  

    If interested in playing an instrument, please click here to fill out the Lesson Registration Form by Monday, September 28th. 

    Once you have signed up your child for lessons, you need to obtain an instrument and book.  Please see the attachment for instructions for more information.  

    If your child is new to Council Rock and they played an instrument at their previous school please contact the appropriate instrumental music teacher.  

    Mrs. Deborah Grant is the band director.  Please contact her with any questions about the band program.  Her email is deborah.covalgrant@crsd.org. Mrs. Lauren Rudat is the orchestra director.  Please contact her with any questions about the orchestra program. Her email is lrudat@crsd.org


    Musically yours, 

    Deborah Grant, Band Director
