Band: Mrs. Fiebrandt
District 101 Band Director
Welcome to the District 101 Band Program!
Although many parents and students see band as a class on learning to play an instrument, it is much more than that. It is the development of a family of friends that could last a lifetime. It is also the establishment of some rather profound environmental influences which will determine much of your child's success in all aspects of education, not just band.
We know that band students represent the top of the academic scale in our schools. We also know that band students are the ones who enjoy a successful high school career, go on to college, and become the leaders in our society. There is a definite link between the top achiever academically and the band student.
One of the most positive impressions you can offer your child is the chance to learn self-discipline at the highest level via participation in band. Their social skills, communication skills, self concepts, cooperative talents and creative mind will all be nurtured through their study of instrumental music. These life skills will serve as an important foundation as they take on various responsibilities in their future.
