Lessons are going very well. The students and I are getting to know each other and I am very pleased. I am also pleased with their progress. Great Gate of Kiev is starting to sound great and Disney Marches is starting to come together. Keep it up.
Auditions for Symphonic Band went well this week. Clarinets will continue next week.
Our first week of lessons were great. I was so happy to meet new students and become acquainted again with former ones. Don’t forget to practice.
Lessons begin this week so don’t forget your instruments. In lessons, I will be teaching all of the flutes and clarinet and a few alto saxophones. Full Band should be fun to here on Tuesday. The Concert Band will be in the Cafeteria. I look forward to working with all of my students.
Activity Block should be starting on Thursday. We’ll have a full band meeting with both the Concert Band and Symphonic Band. No instruments will be needed for that rehearsal. However, when you get your small group lesson assignments, we will start playing immediately. Look out for these assignments. How you play in the first lesson will determine which band you will be in, so start practicing. Please bring in some music that you are comfortable with. See you soon.
I hope you’re first week of school went well. Lessons and Band are starting soon, so get your instruments ready.
