Summer Band

Summer Band is for all levels of students and is a great way for them to continue to play their instrument throughout the summer months. Tuition is prorated if you are going to miss any sessions. Many of our students attend, which helps them transition into the following year. Summer Band is held at Resurrection in Ellicott City on Wednesdays, June  to July from 6:30 pm – 8:45 pm. There will be a concert in late July.  Please make every effort to have your child attend.  Registration forms will be mailed home early in April.
