Tharp Band

 Hilliard THARP Beginning Band Program!

“I missed the meeting and all of the fittings!  What do I do now to get my child signed up for band?!?”

It is not too late!

Meeting Information:  Download the Parent Meeting Brochure 2020 and Joining Band Checklist which were passed out at the meeting.

Fittings:  We have finished all of the fitting nights in the school, however, all of our local music stores do fitting appointments free of charge. Contact them directly to schedule an appointment; they will allow your child to try the the instruments and help them decide which instrument is right for them. Please download this InStore_Fitting_Form, print it, and take it with you to the music store when you attend your child’s fitting.  Here is the contact information for the music stores:
