I’m looking forward to seeing you guys this year!! We will go from not even knowing how to open our instrument case the right way to playing in a concert in December!!
How well you do is up to you. I will give you the information and teach you what to do. Your effort will make the difference between class being fun and class not being fun. Your success if based on how much you put into it at home.
I’m excited about having another great year with my band kids!!!!
Bring your instrument the 2nd day of school and we will make sure you have a place to put it!!!
I will be sending home a sheet with information on how to sign up for remind.com the first week of school. You will get texts that help remind you of the dates and information that you need to know for events this year. Please sign up for it. I promise not to send too many texts. Share with family as well so that they know about dates coming up.
PERFORMANCE DATES FOR 2016-2017
Winter Concert – Sunday Dec. 11. 2016 2:00PM Harrison Co. High School Auditorium 1:00PM warm up (we will also have an opportunity to prepay and eat a Fazoli’s spaghetti/fettucini dinner prior to the concert)
Band Assessment – March 15, 2017 Singletary Center for the Arts Lexington KY. I will know about times as we get closer to the date. Students will go on a school bus. I will be sending info home. I would love for parents to try and come and watch the kids!
Spring Concert – Sunday May 7, 2017 2:00PM Harrison Co. High School Auditorium 1:00PM warm up (we could possibly have an opportunity to prepay and eat a Fazoli’s spaghetti/fettucini dinner prior to the concert)
What do I wear for the performances? White short sleeved polo shirt, Kahki pants that go to the ankle, dark dress shoes/boots, dark belt, dark sock. No tennis shoes. Students need to give me heads up early if they are not able to get these clothes. You will not be allowed on stage without the proper attire. I will help. Do not try and wear tennis shoes. I have a box of shoes that kids can borrow from if needed. Please follow my guidelines.
Students must fulfill all of these obligations in order to get the pizza party at the end of the year. This will also figure in to whether they will remain in band the next year. Please attend and participate in all events.
I’m looking forward to making great music and having a great time!!!! Have a wonderful rest of the summer!!
