8th Grade Band Remind


The 8th Grade Band Class is for students who have completed both 6th and 7th Grade Band.  If there is an 8th grade student who would like to begin band in 8th grade they should speak with Mr. Hedges before signing up for this class.

If the 8th Grade Band Class has its own individual class, the students will begin the School Year by reviewing and finishing the Essential Elements Book 2.  Once this task has been completed, the students will need to purchase the Essential Elements Book 3. 

If the 8th Grade Band is included in the WHS Band Class, most materials will be provided. 

8th Grade Band members will perform at the Spooky Concert, Holiday Concert, KMEA District 6 Concert Assessment at NKU, Spring Concert, and the WHS Graduation Ceremony. 

8th Grade Band members will also have the opportunity to participate in NKBDA 8th Grade Select Band Auditions, Solos & Ensembles, Pep Band, Parades, and either mentor or take private lessons.


  • 8th Grade Band Basic Info

    There is a $25 class fee for this course.


    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 orange/black or a costume for the Spooky Concert.  Students will wear all black with festive accent colors 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).

    8th Graders are asked to participate in the Screamin' Demon Pep Band during basketball season.

    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.
