    Here ʼ s a look at an average year- in- the -life for a Senior Jazz Band student at Eckstein Middle School.

    Please note: your child will need to increase their level of practicing, playing time and commit to events while performing music at the highest level. Not only will they play at performances and travel to festivals, there will also be associated costs. Families will be asked to support their studentʼs activities through positive reinforcement, volunteering, fundraising, and by paying for travel, food and overnight costs.

    As a member of the premier jazz band at Eckstein, your student may miss school work and tests to attend performances, they will need to make these up and keep their school work current and in good standing. Your child will also be a role model to other students in the program and must possess exemplary behavior.

    All band families and parents are highly encouraged to participate in bake sales, fundraising and volunteering to help make the year a success for their students. Throughout the year, parents may be asked to carpool to local events and additional gigs that come up. Some of these gigs will require admittance fees for family members.
