While it may not be what you want to do, think about the opportunity to recruit students directly into band. In addition, you have an opportunity to teach rhythm and note reading so that when they start band... you are that much ahead. Rhythm Bee comes to mind as a way to make it fun and not require a ton of effort on your part. Many years ago - teaching the 4-5 grades was how we were able to grow a HS Band from around 80 students to 180 in five years. Yes, it was an insane amount of work, but I have very found memories of those student. Best of luck.
