We are so excited you and your child are considering joining band in 6th grade. You have come to the right place to get more information. Please note at Hickory Ridge Middle School you can only join band in 6th grade. If you think you are interested in learning an instrument, 6th grade is the year to do it. Band will change your child's life forever. They will LOVE it and so will you. However, there are a lot of things to consider before signing up for band. It’s not an easy A class. There are time and financial commitments to consider. Both will help your child succeed in learning an instrument.

    Signing up for 6th grade band this year will be a little different because of the covid-19 virus. In years past we have tried out and recived instruments BEFORE the summer so when school started we were able to hit the ground running. This year we are asking students NOT to rent, purchase, or choose an instrument until AFTER school starts. We will spend a week or two exploring all of the options and chosing the best instrument for you. 

    Please open the documents below and read through the frequently asked questions to gain more information about joining band. If you have any questions please feel free to email us at steven.stevens@cabarrus.k12.nc.us.
