Welcome to the Fifth Grade Band Information Page. I am Sheryl Grotenhuis and I am the Fifth Grade Band Teacher. Fifth Grade is the year that students are given the opportunity to learn to play an instrument and begin participating in large group band rehearsals. First semester is a time to learn many basic on their chosen instrument through individual lessons so they are able to participate in large group band second semesters as well as continue to have an individual or group lesson. A concert is usually scheduled the middle of May for the band to demonstrate for parents what they have learned during the year.
