AFTER SCHOOL HELP & OCTOBER SPECIAL SCHEDULES
We will be continuing the after school help sessions for a while longer as they are well attended. October has several calendar events that will affect our Elementary Band schedule, BOTH during school hours and after school. The schedule is included in the attached document. YOU WILL PROBABLY WANT TO READ THE ENCLOSED SCHEDULE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE ATTENDING THE AFTER SCHOOL SESSIONS. Please click on the link below.
5th and 6th graders are still welcome to join band. Come in and talk to one of the teachers or just start coming to band class with your friends.
What’s happening in Class!
Tone production is getting better as the embouchure muscles continue to gain strength. We are working to develop the ability to articulate cleanly. Our immediate priority right now in both classes should be to know the names and the fingerings for ALL EIGHT of the notes at the bottom of the “Skill Builders” sheet. (The notes are numbered from one to eight and are the eight notes of the Concert Bb Scale.)
