By registering on our website, each student will also gain access to their personalized YHS Band Dashboard.  This is our main information platform where students can find a variety of tools to help them be successful, including: a list of posted homework assignments, homework documents, practice aids specific to their instrument, professional recordings of our music, class documents, lesson calendars, and more.  This truly awesome service was built by our head webmaster, Joe Menduni (YHS Band, Class of 2014). Thank you, Joe!


In the handbook, please find the list of musical accessories your student will need to be successful in band. Please have your student bring these accessories to their band lesson next week. All students will need a pencil in class every day.


Parents, Ms. Kluga will miss seeing and meeting you all in person for our annual Back to School Night! Instead, please take 5 minutes to watch this video overview of what your student’s experience in band will look this year. Handouts are also attached.
