Happy Spring Break!
For parents who are wondering
what can my child do to help his/her grade they have two extra credit
opportunities during their break time. First they can practice! Second
one, have them perform for everyone, they can earn extra credit points
for every different person they perform for.
for all band students is their concert on April 30th. Please remember to
check those dress pants, so we don't get to concert time and discover
they don't fit anymore! Don't feel the need to purchase expensive
clothes. I often recommend buying a less expensive pair at this age, so
when they out grow them parents can afford to replace them!
The 6th grade students just completed their final playing DSPA and did a great job. They will have a couple of written tests before this year is out, but nothing to worry about, we have been preparing all year for these tests by learning terminology.
5th grade students are going to have one more DSPA playing test before the end of
the year along with a written test. Don't worry we've been working on
the terminology that will be on this written test all year...no need to
Strings students have their final concert of
the year on May 7th. They are preparing their music for this, so please
ask them what they are supposed to practice and encourage them to play
In classes we are working through our book as
well as working on our concert materials. I am excited about how much
progress the groups are making, and as parents you should be proud of
the work your children are producing. Please keep encouraging their
practice and performance. If they want to play for you please take a
moment and listen, it will mean the world to them.
Until next time!
