Elmhurst District 205 offers the opportunity for all students in fourth grade and above to learn to play a string, woodwind, brass or percussion instrument through the Instrumental Music Program. Instruction on string instruments is offered through the orchestra program. Instruction on woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments is offered through the band program. For a description of the elementary instrumental  music program, please click here.

In August and September 2016, all fourth-grade and fifth-grade students will have the opportunity to enroll in the District 205 Instrumental Music Program. Students who are continuing into fifth grade will be automatically re-enrolled in the fall. Parents may pay the District fee online at the District Webstore or pay by check in September.

Current third-grade and fourth-grade students who are not in band or orchestra will be able to register in August and September.

Registration must be completed by speaking with a director by phone or at a registration night.
