Handshue Private Lesson Scholarship

The Handshue Scholarship is awarded to 30 students and helps alleviate the financial burden of private instrumental music lessons. This year, we will once again be offering 10 scholarships per school to students who we feel are deserving based upon an application process, input from respective teachers, and financial need. There will be a scholarship panel assembled, comprised of mainly Music Booster Officers and a director representative, that will be responsible for choosing the most deserving candidates. Each winner will receive funding for 6 months of lessons.

Admittance will be $5 for adults and students (cash, check, and card accepted), children 10 and under will get in free. Again, we invite anyone and everyone to attend.

Calendar of Events – 2022-23

Now is a great time to start planning ahead!  We do have all our events for the Fall Marching Band season updated in our Google Calendar.  Please start there and plan your fall accordingly.  We will send out a Summer Attendance Form in late April/early May that you will use to communicate issues.  

Remember – Band Camp is not easily negotiated. Please arrange to be with us for the entire 3 weeks.

Parent Volunteering

There are so many opportunities to get involved and support the band program as a parent volunteer.  The largest area of need is our concessions team that runs both the home and visitors concession stand throughout the entire fall athletic season.  This includes all football and soccer games (4 days a week until mid-November).  It is a huge undertaking that requires over 400 volunteering shifts, but profits between $20,000-$30,000 each season.  

Please see our Music Booster page to get involved and reach out to the lead parents in any area of interest. 

***Note- in order to volunteer, you must have a Volunteer Badge approved by the Hilliard School District.  It costs $17 and is good for 3 years.  Apply for that badge here: https://www.hilliardschools.org/schools/volunteer/.
