Band Books

We will be using two band books for the entire year, entitled Essential Elements (Book One) and Winning Rhythms. These books are available at Gadsden Music Co. but may also be ordered through the Band Office. Separate books are published for each instrument, so be sure to buy the proper book for the instrument your child will be playing. Checks for books purchased through the band office should be made payable to Glencoe High School.

Band Class

Class will be held from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm on Wednesdays, and after school until 4:30 on Mondays and Thursdays.

Band Concert Information

In keeping with the pride and self-respect we are seeking to promote among band students, concert dress should be very nice. Students should not wear jeans, shorts, tennis shoes, or tops with printed messages or logos if at all possible. In general, it helps to think about dressing as if the student were going to church or attending a wedding. Our first concert will be Thursday, December 16th at 5:00 PM in the GMS Gym.

Band Auxiliary Informational Meeting


Parents of interested students will meet on Monday, March 7 at 5 pm at the Kay Smith School of Performing Arts located at 524 West Main Street (Briarmeade Shopping Center) in Glencoe.

An information sheet has been sent home to students. You can also find that sheet on our school home page.
