Parents,                                                                                                                                   October 26, 2015

            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 downloads tab and they are due before the end of the month. For example, the November practice card will be due on November 30th. It would be wise to check when your last class of the month will be to avoid turning in a late practice card.  

Playing tests – On the week of Nov 9, there will be playing tests for everyone. Here is what your child is expected to know:                   (All of this information is on the website as well.) 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 - #99 Skill Builder

Advanced Orchestra – #124 G major study
