Parents of 5th GRADE STUDENTS
Hello everyone! If your 5th grade child is interested in being a part of the band at NMS next year, please follow the link below to sign up or ask questions! Being a part of the band can have such a positive impact on your child's life and education. Students who participate in band have been proven to have higher grades, ACT scores, and graduation rates. Here at NMS we think of the band like an extended family and are always looking for more family members! Don't know what you want to play? No problem- follow the link below for some instrument demonstrations to help you decide. We have two class options for incoming 6th graders for band: 
1.) Woodwind/ Percussion Class: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, and Mallet percussion (switch to drums later in year)
2.) Brass Class: Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, and Tuba
Let Mrs. Watts know if you have any questions at her email:
Follow the link below to sign up or ask questions! We look forward to working with your child and family this fall in this exciting new adventure. 
One of the most common questions we get about band: Can my child be in band and do sports? The answer is absolutely! We highly encourage it. This creates well rounded individuals. A lot of NMS BAND members participate in sports!

Band Director, North Middle School (Franklin County, TN)
