New Parents - Gr. 5 Parent Information Evening for Bayside Middle School on Thursday, May 28th will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room. 

Also on that evening the Bayside Band Teacher is hosting an Instrument Petting Zoo for all upcoming Band 6 students (those whom signed up for Band 6 for September) on Thursday May 28 from 7-7:45pm. This is an opportunity for those aspiring musicians to get a hands-on approach to choosing the instrument which will be the best fit for their embouchure, stature, and overall musical strengths. While parents are meeting with Mrs MacDonald and Mr Newlove in the Multipurpose Room, I will bring the band students to one of the classroom pods to see, hear, and try the various instruments. While we all may like the look and sound of a particular instrument, it is important to be able to make a healthy (and easy) sound on the instrument. We don't want students to pick an instrument out of convenience either. After this Instrument Petting Zoo, students will have a better idea of the instrument that they should play in Band 6. No instruments will be issued until September, when we will hold our Instrument Rental Night (more information to follow).
