Parents, October 24, 2016
Happy Halloween! I am writing this letter to keep you informed about things that are going on soon in band/orchestra land.
Practice cards – For every month, there is a corresponding practice card. You can print them out from the practice cards tab and your child gets music money for turning them in. They are a great way to keep track of where we should be at throughout the year so you don’t fall behind.
Playing tests – On the week of Nov 9, there will be playing tests for everyone. Here is what your child is expected to know: You have a lot of time to prepare, please don’t wait until the last minute.
Beginning Band - #27 Good King Wenceslas
Beginning Orchestra – #43 Mozart Melody
Advanced Band – Already did their test
Advanced Orchestra – #124 G major study
Concerts – Our fall concerts are just around the corner! Both band and orchestra will have a concert on the 7th of November. If your child is in beginning or advanced band, your concert is at 5:30PM. If your child is in beginning or advanced orchestra, your concert is at 7:00PM. Both concerts are at Columbine High School in the gym.
