2023-2024 Incoming Band Students

Welcome to the Bailey Band

We are so excited that you are interested in being in the Bailey Band!  You are 3 steps away from making the best decision of your middle school career!


Click this link to set up an appointment for our Bailey Band sign up nights that will be held on Feb 20th and 22nd in the Bailey band room.  This is not a test, rather an opportunity to see what instrument naturally fits your child.  Don't worry, your child will have the final say after they have tried the instruments within the spots available.  That's why we recommend doing this ASAP.  We like to say that the instrument often picks the child rather than the other way around. In order to have a balanced band, we do have some limited spots for some of our instruments so getting this done on our assigned sign up nights is important.

Once you attend a sign up night and your child is secured a spot for their chosen instrument, you'll then secure your instrument and instrument supplies as listed on the following document:

Once you get your instrument spot and supplies secured, we do the work to make sure you are registered for band.  The only thing left to do is check out our Summer Band Camp Information posted here and save the date:
