Remind for 7th Grade Band


The 7th Grade Band Class includes all students who have finished one year of instruction through the 6th Grade Beginning Band.  Students wishing to begin Band during their 7th grade year who did not take 6th Grade Beginning Band will need to speak with Mr. Hedges before taking this class.

The 7th Grade Band Class will begin the school year in August by reviewing and finishing the Essential Elements Book 1.  Once this task has been completed, the students will need to purchase Essential Elements Book 2 for their instrument. 

Students will participate in a Spooky Concert, Holiday Concert, KMEA District 6 Concert Assessment at NKU, Parades, Spring Concert, and the WHS Graduation Ceremony.

Students will also have the opportunity to audition for the NKBDA Select 7th Grade Band, participate in the WHS Screamin' Demon Pep Band, participate in Solos & Ensembles, and either mentor or take private lessons.


  • 7th Grade Band Basic Info


    Each student is assessed a $25 class fee.

    We have very few school owned instruments.  A small rental fee, $50 (for the entire year) will be assessed for the use of an available school owned instrument.  All student percussionists are assessed the $50 per year for use and the maintenance of the school instruments.  Student percussionists will also need to provide their own drum sticks as needed.  In addition, the students playing a wind instrument may need to purchase their own mouthpiece.

    Students will wear all orange/black or a costume for the Spooky Concert.  Students will wear festive attire for the Holiday Concert.  Students will wear the Orange Band Shirt (will be offered for purchase at $7 later in the year), khaki/tan shorts, and choice of appropriate footwear for the Spring Concert.  Students who participate in the WHS Graduation Ceremony will wear all black (appropriate black dress, nice black dress shirt, nice black dress pants, black belt, black socks, and semi-formal black shoes).

    If there are any issues with $, please contact Mr. Hedges.

    Should you have any questions, please contact Mr. Hedges at chris.hedges@williamstown.kyschools.us or at 859-824-7144 ext. 299.
