UPCOMING CONCERTS!  (also, please see the Upcoming Concerts page on this site)
Is your child on the Notereading Honor Roll?  Ask...?
Each instrument case MUST have a nametag on it!

Each child will be expected to play our ensemble music to the best of their ability. Please help your child set up a good routine as early as possible. Your child will need a metronome, a music stand, and a quiet place in the home for practice. Percussionists will also need a practice pad, and a stickbag for their
drumsticks and mallets.

Please note the concert dates on the Music Department Dates page, and make sure they get written on the family calendar.  Unlike elementary school, your child will receive a report card grade for Band or Orchestra.

DON'T MISS A CONCERT!  Students in band and orchestra receive a report card grade.  The concert is their term assessment.  Excused absences include illness or injury, and urgent family business.  Anything else is considered an unexcused absence.  If a student misses a concert for an unexcused reason, he or she will be called to the music room to play through the program in order to demonstrate preparation for the class, or, the report card grade will drop.
