We are very excited to start preparations for our new school year and another year in the CMS Band!
For our new students, your first year is going to be an unforgettable experience! For our returning students, you have a lot to look forward to in 7th & 8th grade including football performances, Christmas Parade, festival competition, our annual Winter and Spring Concerts, and so much more! 8th Graders will also be performing in our annual Fall Concert that will be movie themed (including costumes!) this year.
Online Prep begins today!

CLARINET & SAXOPHONE REEDS
We are very particular about the brand and size because it greatly effects pitch, tone quality, and ease of playing! Please make sure your child is stocked up with one or two boxes of Vandoren Traditional Bb Clarinet or Alto Saxophone Reeds size 2.5 or 3 (most will be on 2.5 but double check by seeing what size they have now).
