Instrumental Music for Grades 4 and 5, 2023-24

Warren Township Schools, Warren, NJ


Join the fun: Join the Band or Orchestra! Next week, your child will be introduced to our instrumental music program, which begins in Fourth Grade. Instrumental music takes place in small group lessons starting in September. Later in the year, students are invited into Gold Strings or Gold Band, and begin preparing for our annual Spring Concert. There is no additional fee for lessons, but students will need to rent an instrument to participate.


A high-quality instrument is the key to success for beginners. Warren Township works with Elefante Music to provide quality instruments for rental. Renting is your family’s best option: the cost is reasonable and the instrument will be delivered to your child’s school in the fall. Elefante guarantees quality, provides free repairs at school, and makes it easy to switch if your child wants to try another instrument. We do not allow students to use low-quality instruments, such as those found at on-line retailers such as Amazon. These instruments lead to frustration because they are unplayable, even at a beginning level.


Current Third Grade (rising to Fourth) students should choose an instrument as soon as possible. Their parents/guardians should then immediately fill out the on-line rental form. You must use the Warren Township District codes when placing your order with Elefante Music. Using these codes ensures you will get our district discount and the necessary lesson books.


FULL SCHOOL YEAR RENTAL (recommended): 304722023

5 Months: 3047220235

The Elefante Music website is here: Elefante Music - Instruments and Rental Forms

The website includes a series of instrument demonstration videos to help your child choose. Please take a few minutes to view the videos so you and your child can make the best choice. A list of instruments that we offer is below.

IMPORTANT! Please also fill out our district form indicating your student’s instrument choice for next year. This will help us plan for 2023-24. The link is here:


Thank you! We look forward to having your child join us next fall! Please email with any questions: mweber@warrentboe.org
