Although our bands are taught by paid professionals, our organization is run by all our homeschooling parents.  There are many things outside directing a band that must be accomplished in order to make Joyful Noise Homeschool Band a success.  As with many  organizations, the principle of “many hands make light work” applies.  Therefore, you will notice a place on the registration form to note your intention to participate in some capacity during the year, or to opt out by paying the non-participation fee.

Please do not be put off by the sound of this requirement.  Many needs are easily accomplished right at the church during class time and will not take any more time away from your family or homeschooling program.

The registration link is on the homepage at the bottom. This year our registration is done through Jackrabbit Classes. You will be able to manage all your students, classes and payments in one place. 

To register for Joyful Noise programs, please note the following: 

  • Note: Once registered, you will receive invitations to join the Joyful Noise Slack group and SignUpGenius.
