Music Notes

The final 9 weeks!  Where has the time gone?

For parents of 4th, 5th, 6th , 7th or 8th graders; you should still be hearing instruments being practiced.  The 4th graders are expected to practice 30 minutes a week on their recorders; the 5th-8th graders are to be practicing 60 minutes a week on their instrument.  Please remember that beginning band meets on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4:15-4:45.  This rehearsal is open to any band students, it counts as 6th-8th graders practice times if they choose to come!

District Music Contest will be held in Alliance on Wednesday, April 18th.  This will involve the Swing Choir, Concert Choir and Concert Band.  The concert band will consist of 7th-9th grade students.  6th grade band students will not be attending.  I have not received a schedule and will do my best to communicate that with you once I have it.
