Welcome to the Appoquinimink School District Beginning Band and Strings Program!

BCME_2016-20_logoRGBƒ.jpg

In 4th and 5th grade, our students have an opportunity to choose and instrument and join the band or strings program. On this page you will find resources to hear/see the instruments, register for the program, and get set up through Zeswitz Music for a rental instrument. You’ll also find important dates and links to find out more about how our lesson program works. If you have any questions about this process or the program in general, please contact the band or strings director for your school listed on this site. 

We are looking forward to meeting you all very soon!
