This week in band (March 11)

6th Grade

As we continue to prepare for our spring concert, we are concentrating on developing the students skills on their instruments. We are encouraging all of our students to practice a little more as we approach the end of the year.

As we prepare to move forward we have made the students aware of several opportunities that will help them to advance on their instruments

Private lessons: The secret to excelling on any musical instrument in private lessons. If you are interested in having your student take private lessons please email Mr. Grimes.

Summer Camps: Over the next few weeks we will be posting information about summer camps. These are a fun way for your student to learn more about their instrument and meet new people. Please keep an eye on the blog for more information.

We have LGPE on Tuesday March 20th. We have sent home information about this, but please let Mr. Grimes know if you have any questions.

We do ask that every student make sure they have everything they need for their uniform. The final parts (including vests) will be going home this week. Please try on anything you have and make sure everything fits. We will not be resizing uniform parts on LGPE day. Any student not showing up in uniform on Tuesday will not be going with us to LGPE. If you have any questions about uniform parts please email Mr. Grimes.

Mr. Grimes and Mr. Brown will be out of town with the percussion this Thursday and Friday, but we have subs that will be able to rehearse the bands while we are aware. Please take a moment to make sure your student is prepared to learn while we are aware. We only have a few days left to prepare for LGPE, and each day needs to be full of learning.
