• Welcome,

    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.

    If you are a rising 7th or 8th grader and would like to join band. Please email Mr. Rivero at david.rivero@cabarrus.k12.nc.us

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at david.rivero@cabarrus.k12.nc.us or Mr Smith at derek.smith@cabarrus.k12.nc.us After attending try outs please visit my "buying an instrument" page for some suggested instrument brands.
