Want to help the music program directly by donating needed equpiment and materials?

The National Teacher Registry is a free service for schools and teachers that enables them to create a list of the items they need for their classrooms. Conceptually it is similar to a wedding or baby shower registry.

With the National Teacher Registry, parents and others can find a teacher's registry, purchase items from the list, and have the items delivered to the classroom.

Dear Yerington Band parent,

The new school year is in full swing, it's time to keep up those music “chops” and begin developing them for band. As director of bands at YHS I have been teaching private lessons on band instruments for over 17 years and would love to continue this year. If you or your band student want to work a little just to keep fresh, hope to develop a hidden talent or get ahead in band this fall, please contact me to set up some one on one private lessons or get together with some others for group lessons. The end goal is to keep music at Yerington going strong and make sure it continues to have a strong presence in our community

Musically yours,
