The instrument fitting process takes place in the Spring of a student's 4th grade year. The Mukwonago Band program utilizes a comprehensive, research-based process that matches each student to an instrument based on an examination of their abilities, physical attributes, and personal musicianship goals.
Students who have been fit for an instrument through this process find more immediate success and long term happiness in band. We encourage students and families to enter into instrument fitting with an open mind. Many of our students leave the fitting excited to play a different instrument than they had expected.
After instrument fittings are complete each teacher carefully evaluates a student's performance and selects an instrument for them that best matches their abilities and interest. Families are notified of what instrument their student will play through email.
