Well the strings concert in November was a great success and we are anxious to get our first 6th grade band concert under way!

The 6th grade band concert is at Pronghorn Elementary and will be at 6:00 p.m. Please have your student dressed up, with their instrument, music and great attitude at Pronghorn by 5:45 p.m. There is a concert at 7:00 p.m. so don't be worried if there are cars arriving as you leave.

With the holiday season upon us this is a great time to think about Christmas gifts that will support your child's interest in their instrument. Some ideas could include, a music stand if they don't have one, a metronome (this helps them keep time), or any variety of books that the music store might have, just make sure they aren't too hard.

 Remember to keep supporting your child's practice habits. A regular time and space are key to this. They need to work on things they can not do as well as end with something they love to play. A few minutes a day is better than a long session once or twice a week.

Thanks for your continued support!

Ms. Hayes, Mrs. Gleason, and Mrs. Schofield
