Peacham Band

Dear Grade 3-6 Families,

Peacham students in grades 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in our band program. Lessons and ensemble rehearsals will take place on Thursdays during the school day.

Ellis Music is visiting our school on Tuesday, September 2 at 10 a.m. to give an instrument demonstration and provide rental information. Instruments available from Ellis include flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, baritone horns, and percussion (drums). If you wish to rent from Ellis you will be asked to fill out a Band Instrument Survey and return it to me by Thursday, Sept. 4. I will share survey information with Ellis Music so they can be ready to deliver instruments the following week.

Ellis is scheduled to deliver instruments and process rental contracts on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 5 p.m. at Barnet School. If you cannot be in Barnet at that time, but still wish to rent an instrument, there is a later delivery in Danville that evening at 7 p.m. Please let me know if you need to attend the later delivery, so Ellis knows what instruments to bring where.

Although many families rent thorugh Ellis, some choose to use band instruments from home. If you have your own instrument that you’d like to use, please send it into school as soon as possible so I can make sure everything works as it should. We also do have a limited number of school instruments available; let me know if you’d like to talk further about this option.

If you have any questions, please email me at or leave a message for me at school. Thanks!

Kevin Colosa (Mr. C)

Music Teacher, Peacham School.
