Welcome back! I hope you had a great summer and are ready to start the year in ADVANCED INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC! That’s right—if you were in Beginning Band or Orchestra last year, you will be in Advanced Band and Orchestra this year. Congratulations on moving up!
There is no need to sign up again this year for band or orchestra. I know you all from last year! This would be a good time to go ahead and get you instrument out of the case, take it to the music shop for any repairs or basic maintenance, and start to play some of the songs from last year. Don’t worry if you haven’t practiced for a while… we will start by reviewing! I attached the materials list for this year, so you can double check that you have everything ready to go. I already have some GREAT music picked out for you to play!
Our first lessons of the year will begin the week of September 11th. On the back of this letter are the lesson times for the first two weeks. Don’t forget to bring your instrument, music book, folder, and a smile J. I will hand out the full schedule along with other important materials at the first lesson of the year. And don’t worry, you CAN do both chorus AND Band/Orchestra. We have students do it all the time! Mrs. Bradley and I love to share our musically talented students!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I am so excited to start working with all of you again! I can already tell that this is going to be a great year!
See you soon!
