Dear 8th grade families, My name is Sebastian Lozano, and I am the assistant band director at McMinn County High School. I wanted to let you know about an opportunity for your student to learn to play an instrument and participate in band in High School. We will be offering a Beginning Band class next year that is open to all students who wish to learn an instrument, no experience is required. Students who join beginning band in high school will play in the stands on Friday nights, perform in concerts, and have opportunities to travel with the Marching Band. Please encourage your student to sign up for beginning band if they have any interest, and feel free to email me with any questions at slozano@mcminnschools.com. Thanks and Go Tribe!
