All JH band students should consider bringing in a binder so that they can keep their music for this year. Students will be receiving a lot of music this year along with supplemental material to help students throughout the year. A binder will give students an organized, safe place to keep music.
7th Grade Students
Instrument testing should be completed on Monday, all students will be aware of what they are going to be playing for the school year. At this time, it is looking like we are going to have a large and well-balanced Beginning Band. Students will be learning about rhythm and note reading during school while we wait for everyone to get their instruments.
8th Grade Students
Students that are going to be switching instruments will be doing so at the end of next week. Monday we will begin looking at some warm ups that we will use for the school year, and possibly even look at a few pieces of music.
Parents: Help keep your students organized by getting them a binder, signing up for REMIND, and adding this web site to your favorites. Also, any student that will be using a school owned instrument will have to turn in a completed School Owned Instrument Contract.
This is shaping up to be a great year, and everyone is very excited!
