Eaton Fundamental Middle School to offer summer beginning band classes 

Upcoming fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students who are interested in developing their musical potential as a member of the Eaton Fundamental Middle School Band, have an opportunity to enroll in summer beginner band classes.  No previous musical experience is required.

“By participating in band, students not only learn how to perform on a musical instrument, but also develop coordination, self-discipline, responsibility, and a sense of achievement, as a result of effort and the ability to work with others as a team,” said Lisa Farrell, band director at Eaton.

Summer band will be held June 20-July 13, according to the following schedule.  The cost is $40.00 per student.
