Wright ES Launches Band Program

Wright Elementary School launched their first band program this fall.  The ensemble has grown to twenty members since September 2017 and is open to students in grades 3, 4, & 5, with parent permission. 

“With the help of area music stores and local donors, instruments taught are: flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trombone, bells, and keyboard,” said program director, Peggy Price-Pierce.  “Students are learning the responsibility of caring for their instruments, music literacy, listening, and instrumental playing techniques.” 

Mrs. Price-Pierce is a former high school band director with a passion to nurture the talents within her students at Wright Elementary.  The assistant sponsor, Megan Ramsey, desires to enable children to discover correlations between math and music.
