Ricketts Band  
    WPSD students can sign up to take lessons on a band instrument starting in fourth grade. We offer free instruction on the following band instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone horn, and percussion (drums). Instruments can be rented or purchased from any local music store.

    Band lessons take place during the school day. A typical lesson is forty minutes long, once each week. Groups usually include from three to eight students. With the approval of the band director, students may be selected to participate in the band for the winter or spring concerts. The Chorus and Band combine to present a December concert and another in the spring.
