Hello all! Things are moving along here in the instrumental music room!

5th grade string students are starting to work on their music for their May 7th concert. Please encourage them to practice this at home. They are starting to put more notes together and need to spend time working with this skill.

6th grade string students are working on their music for their May 7th concert as well. They are also working on a piece for their DSPA which will be on March 26th during class. They should be working on #71 Mocking Bird for this test.

5th grade band students are learning to listen to each other while we play. As the music gets more difficult it is important for them to start to listen more to how their parts work together. Please keep encouraging them to practice their music for their April 30th concert.

6th grade band students are starting their work toward their April 30th concert as well. We are working on a multiple media piece for this concert, it should be fun, and provide some flash back moments for you. These students also need to be thinking about their choices for junior high. I know that they have already registered for junior high, but it's not to late to change a mind and a schedule. Please be aware there have been changes to the Hathaway scholarship that impact fine arts.

Thanks for checking in and until next time happy practicing!
