Week in Review (8/28-9/3)

Our Beginning Band students have received their new instruments so that they may experience one of the greatest gifts of life…..MUSIC! New sounds will fill the band room and our homes. Instruments need to go home daily for practice. We will be learning good practice habits, so that time is efficient.

In Concert Band, we are helping our newest students get accustomed to their new instruments. Many of our students will become mentors, by training others. What a great opportunity to collaborate and help one another.

Symphonic Band students are working on developing and unifying sound, discipline in rehearsal, and preparing for their first concert in October. Our band officers have been very helpful, organizing many aspects of our band program, and helping others.

Jazz Band is beginning to learn a lot about style and articulation. A new aspect of playing for many is improvisation, where music is made up on the spot. It is great to hear the students try something new and be successful.

WEEK IN REVIEW (8/21-8/28)

Our Beginning Bands are selecting instruments and learning about the various instruments. We are ‘building’ our band classes, with good instrumentation, and learning how to work as a team. Our Beginning students came to school and were tested on the instruments, by some fabulous professional musicians.

Our Concert Band has a number of 8th grade beginners, and we are creating an atmosphere where we will have students who already play helping those who don’t know how to play. It will be a great time of growth for both groups.

Our Symphonic Band is working on some basic fundamentals, especially in the areas of rhythms, unfamiliar notes, and breathing. Our work will the balloons proved to be very helpful.

COMING UP (8/28-9/3)

  • MONDAY – Band Officer Mtg. (4-5pm)
  • TUESDAY – Beginning Band Parent and Instrument Rental Meeting (6pm – cafeteria)
  • WEDNESDAY – Handbook Review   
  • THURSDAY – All-State Group Help (8-9am)
