FCCA Music, Choir, & Band

Welcome to the new school year!  My name is Patricia DeBenedetto and I am excited to return as the Band Teacher at FCCA (GO FLYERS!!!).  We hope to continue with those students who were in band last year.  Last year's band students will be called Intermediate Band.  Students in grades 5-8 who would like to learn to play an instrument will be called Beginning Band.  All students who have not played an instrument, but are excited to learn will sign up for Beginning Band. 

***Cost per month, per student = only $45.00 payable to Patricia DeBenedetto before the last day of each month***

BAND EXPECTATIONS:  All FCCA Band Students are expected to do their very best at learning this great new skill.  We are asking that each student make at least a ½ year commitment, with the goal of playing until the end of the school year!!!  There will be a new music book provided to students at a discount price. 



If you know that your child is interested and they know what instrument they would like to play, please secure your instrument at one of the following music stores:

 ***Please note that students wanting to play drums must be in 7-8 grade and provide their own percussion kit, which includes bells on wheels!****
