Wind Ensemble Knight Band Notes-9.25.20

“Music expresses that which cannot be said, and on which it is impossible to be silent.” ― Victor Hugo (Author of, “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame and Les Miserables)

WE VALUE YOUR TIME! There are 2 DIFFERENT Knight Band Notes. Please read the version the pertains to your child’s placement next week (Virtual Learner OR Face-to-face Learner)

Private Lessons

Lessons have begun, but it’s not too late.  If you are still interested, please use the link below.  Face to face learners will take their chromebook into a practice room to have the lesson online with the teacher. (Cell phones do not work well in the practice rooms so students that have been using Facetime will probably need to use Zoom on their chromebook).
