St. Hedwig Band

Band is back at St. Hedwig School! No prior experience is needed for a musician to join the band. The goal of band is for each musician to have fun playing music while acquiring skills and a perspective on music that will enhance their lives forever.


Musicians will be able to choose to play from the following instruments:


          • flute
          • clarinet
          • alto saxophone
          • trumpet
          • trombone
          • percussion/bell kit

All SHS students attended an instrument demonstration assembly at school on Monday, June 12 where they heard young musicians playing the above instruments.


SHS students will have the summer to decide which instrument they would like to play. The internet is a great resource to hear and see instruments being played. Once your musician has decided on an instrument, please notify me by email so that I can plan accordingly. Please email me the musician’s:


          • first and last name
          • grade in school (2023-24 school year)
          • instrument
          • parent’s or guardian’s name
          • parent’s cell phone contact number

Band participation fee: $499.00 checks payable to: Tom Mitter

Payment is due by the first rehearsal September 13, 2023. This one-time fee covers all classes and performances. A payment installment plan is available.


Please contact me by email with any questions that you might have. I will return all emails within one day. I’m looking forward to a great year with the St. Hedwig School Band!
