Band Sign Ups

Zeb Gattis

The band had sign ups on Tuesday April 11 for the sixth graders coming into Chaffin to pick an instrument to play. The sign ups consisted of the sixth graders going into the science wing and testing out for their new instruments. Each room was assigned a specific instrument/instruments and a line would form outside with one person testing. In the percussion room a student would talk to a percussion expert and tap to show their rhythmic skills, they would then be graded for each instrument that they tried out for. After that, the student would go to the band teachers, hand them their scores, and then the teachers would advise them on which instrument they should play. Each instrument can only have a set number of people who can play it so a student needs to make an important decision. I hope that every student will get to play the instrument they desire.
