Other rehearsal and performance opportunities may be added to our calendar at the discretion of Mr. Perez including several in-school field trips to rehearse with college professors, and off campus to perform/work with other guitar programs, and performing in our community.  Students will be notified at least two weeks prior each added event.  An unexcused absence from each and any rehearsal and performance commitment will result in the lowering of a letter grade during the grading period from which the performance was held.  Please contact Mr. Perez if there are any questions or conflicts at least two weeks prior to a performance.
