There are now two (2) bands at Fairview Middle School:
7th and 8th Grade Band -- If a student signs up to participate in 7th and 8th Grade Band, they will have rehearsal during the 7th and 8th Grade Tutorial Period (5th period) on A days.
5th & 6th Grade Band --If a student signs up to participate in 5th & 6th Grade Band, they will have rehearsal during the 5th & 6th Grade Tutorial Period (6th period) on B days.
There are also small-group instrumental lessons at Fairview Middle School:
5th & 6th Grade Lessons— All students who participate in 5th & 6th Grade Band must also participate in a one-day-a-week, small-group instrumental lesson. These lessons rotate through four (4) different periods. Therefore, the students only miss a class once a month. All lessons take place in Room 206. If students are taking private lessons outside of school, they are encouraged, but not required, to also take the small group lesson. They will be, however, still required to submit practice logs and a monthly form signed by their private lesson instructor. The students in this ensemble will receive a lesson schedule from the band director at the beginning of each month. It will also be posted on Schoology.

Is Music a Part of Your Life? Do You Like to Sing?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then the Fairview Middle School Chorus is the place for you!
HOW DOES FAIRVIEW MIDDLE SCHOOL CHORUS WORK?
There are two Choruses at FMS, one for 5th and 6th Grade, and another for 7th and 8th Grade. Students who wish to join should notify Mrs. Vilushis or Ms. Shallenberger by September 9, 2016. The 5th & 6th Grade Chorus will meet on A days during their tutorial period. The 7th/8th Grade Chorus will meet on B days during their tutorial period.
All FMS students will have the opportunity to audition and participate in the Spring Musical. Stay tuned for more details.
Students ABSOLUTELY CAN participate in both chorus AND band!
The schedule allows for this and the directors work closely together to make sure the students do not feel overwhelmed or unable to handle both ensembles.
