Fifth Grade Band

Welcome to the Fifth Grade Band Webpage!

I am Darren Asleson and I teach Fifth Grade Band at Farmington, Riverview, and Akin Road Elementary Schools. I have the pleasure of starting students on their journey with band.

Every student has the opportunity to sign up for Fifth Grade Band during the spring of their fourth grade year. Students have the opportunity to begin taking lesson on their instrument the summer before they enter fifth grade or in the fall of that year. Every band student has a small group lesson and a large group rehearsal once every five school days during the year.

The band performs a Demonstration Concert in December, at the Band Jubilee in March, and a spring concert in May.

Due to the busy lesson schedule and multiple teaching locations, e-mail is the preferred method of communication, if possible.
