2016 - 2017
I hope everyone has had a rested summer and is as excited as I am to start our brand new school year. As we gear up for the first day of school, I wanted to send out some quick reminders for students. Please see your band section below for information regarding the first week of school! See everyone Monday!
Beginning Band (Band I)
Any one that rented instruments over the summer will receive their instruments the 1st day of school. Students may take the instruments home and leave them there for a few weeks. We will be learning some theory and mouthpiece information before playing our instruments.
Students will receive a handbook the first day of school. This will have all mandatory dates regarding the band program. Please read this information carefully and return it signed the next day!
I look forward to meeting all of our new band members.
Advanced Band (Band II)
Students returning to band should make sure that they have necessary materials for class as we will be playing the first day. Please check to be sure that you have plenty of reeds (at least 5), cork grease or valve oil, silk cleaning swab, drumsticks/mallets, and a folder for music.
We will be using the Standard of Excellence Book 2 this year for our daily method book. This is different from last year. Please be sure to pick up the level two book for your child's instrument. Please see the picture below so that you know which "color" to pick up. Scales Street Music in Reidsville and Moore Music in Greensboro have a good selection right now. Please pick them up as soon as you can!
I look forward to seeing everyone! I've missed you all.
