NEW: Blanchard Mixed-Instrumentation Group Lessons:
In the 2019-2020 school year, a new mixed-instrumentation group instrument lesson (woodwind/brass only) for 5th & 6th beginners will begin at Blanchard. This program is designed to mirror the existing program in the Acton schools. This program is not designed to take the place of our existing Blanchard band program. Students taking this mixed-instrumentation group lesson may choose to take part in the Ensemble Enrichment Block Band that takes place on Wednesday mornings during school.
- The cost of this lesson program is $195 for the school year.
- Students will also need to acquire or rent an instrument.
- There is financial assistance available as well as assistance in acquiring instruments.
- This program is for 5th and 6th grade students only.
- This program is for beginners, not students with previous playing experience.
Blanchard Memorial Bands:
