The 2019-2020 school year is here! We are so excited to meet you and begin a wonderful year of making music! All band members will soon be bringing home our 2019-2020 Information Packet that contains our Grading Policy, Lesson Guidelines, Uniform Guidelines, Calendar, and T-Shirt Order Form. All students will need to have this turned in by Friday, August 23rd.

The Wauconda Middle School Band Program serves more than 200 students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades at Wauconda Middle School. Bands are divided by grade level, though occasionally students will perform with a band other than their grade level. Each curricular ensemble meets daily. Band students also receive small group lessons in a rotating pull-out schedule. Extracurricular offerings include Jazz Band, which meets Tuesday and Thursday mornings during 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarter, and the D118 Solo and Ensemble Festival, which takes place each February.
