Knight Band Notes- Beginner Band 9/13/19
Greetings Knight Band Students and Parents!
Instruments are coming home!! Please help your young musician make a plan as to how they will get them home (especially if they ride a bike) and where they will practice (should be a quiet place free from distractions). French horn, Euphonium, and Tuba those instruments will stay home. They will have a ‘school instrument’ and a ‘home instrument’. If the home instrument needs repair please bring it up to the school.
* Weekend Assignment
The beginners were given a fun assignment for the weekend! They get to teach YOU how to assemble, produce a sound, clean and disassemble their instrument! Parent Teach 2019.
*19-20 Band Uniform Shirts
We will distribute your student’s uniform shirt on Wednesday, 9/18/19, if their band bundle has been paid for. We will encourage students to wear them or put them away immediately.
*Band Membership ‘Packet’, Past Due August 24th
If you have not filled out the “Membership Packet” please try to complete this weekend. 🙂
*Next Week’s Lessons
Here are some things that students will be learning in beginner band class next week:
- How to produce a long steady tone on their instrument
