We welcome your child's membership! Fife and drum is a great way to learn an instrument, receive musical instruction, and have fun with other young people.
Come to a rehearsal on any Thursday night. Check us out! (We do not have rehearsal on Thursday, August, 24th, though.) Click on "Visit Us" to find our location. Then...
Email us to let us know that he/she would like to join or ask any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org This way, we will be ready to teach your child. We'll have a simple membership form for you to complete.
Let us know which instrument your child has chosen: snare drum, bass drum, or fife. Then, we'll tell you how and where to purchase starter instruments. Snare drummers will need drum pads and drum sticks. Bass drummers will need drum pads and beaters. Fifers will need a plastic fife. We sell the plastic fifes. Don't buy them on Amazon or in another place as the quality is usually not good.
Then, you simply bring your child to rehearsals at 7pm on Thursday nights at the Ithaca VFW, 423 West State Street, Ithaca.
Oh yes - don't forget to have your child practice at home between rehearsals!
