Final Lesson of this School Year!

Good Afternoon!

I hope you’re having a great day! I just wanted to connect with you in regards to lessons for this coming cycle. I would like to meet with the band students one more time this school year during this next cycle.
I will be meeting with the current 4th and 5th grader band students to go over a packet of music they can practice over the summer. This packet will have some exercises they can practice, band music for next year and it will have a list of private teachers, if you are interested in taking private lessons over the summer (lessons are NOT required but would be greatly helpful for any student).
Please encourage your student musician to bring their instrument and book to school with them for their lesson this cycle.
 
The schedule will be as follows: 
 
Wednesday, May 23rd: 
4th and 5th Grade Flutes
11:20-11:40
 
Thursday, May 24th: 
4th Grade Saxophones
9:30-950
Friday, May 25th:

4th Grade “Full” Band Practice

Good Afternoon 4th Parents/Guardians!

As you are probably well aware, our first ever Hambright Elementary Spring Concert is quickly approaching on May 16th! Because of this, I would like to begin meeting with my “full” 4th grade band on Cycle Day C (both C1 and C2) from 10:40 until about 11:10 to rehearse together for our concert performance. This will be the first time our 4th grade students have ever rehearsed together, out of their lesson groups, so this time is extremely important to the growth of our group.

The following students should plan to bring their instruments to school on all cycle day C’s for their 4th grade band rehearsal:

Reagan Gerlach Flute Groff
Dannielle Spurgeon

 

Flute Rios
Adelyn Martin Clarinet Showalter
Evangeline Grapes Clarinet Showalter
Elijah Garland Clarinet Rios
Aliya Stanley Sax Groff
Lathan Axe Sax Groff
Hunter Cusack Trumpet Groff
Alondra DeJesus-Ortiz Trumpet Rios
Fiona Mausolf Trumpet Showalter
Alivia Lualhati Trumpet Showalter
Robert Quinn Trumpet Rios
Zion Santiago Trumpet Groff
Tori Vasold Trombone Groff
Liam Risser Trombone Showalter

 

The dates of the rehearsals will be: (Pending any random late spring snow days)

Monday April 23
Thursday May 3
Wednesday May 9
Tuesday May 15

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
