We are so excited to have you at Goddard next year!
Thank you for your interest in the Goddard Raider Band program. No prior experience is required to play any instrument. However, certain physical characteristics of a player will lead them to be more successful on a particular instrument. We will help your student find the instrument that is most appropriate and on which your student shows the greatest potential for success!
Upcoming instrument tryouts:
May 1 6:00pm-8:00pm
May 8th 6:00pm-8:00pm
May 13th 6:00pm-8:00pm
Please enter through the doors at the west end of the bus lane (by the big tree) on Haynes Ave. Some sections fill up quickly, like percussion and saxophone. Please understand that while many students have a desire to play these instruments, spots are filled on a first-come first-served basis as determined by the results of an instrument tryout. Come with an open mind ready to try more than one instrument.
