Band and orchestra programs are a huge part of 5th grade in all Edina elementary schools. In the spring of 4th grade, students meet with band and orchestra directors to choose an instrument. Many students then rent their instruments from music stores which provide 6-8 private summer lessons along with the instrument. Economically disadvantaged students often rent their instruments directly from school band and orchestra programs and thus do not get to take the private lessons that others do. Edina Give and Go is working with band and orchestra directors to help several students take 6-8 private band or orchestra lessons this summer so that they will be ready to hit the ground running with their peers on the first day of school next fall. Please give so that all students in need can take lessons.
