Long weekend...

Have a great long weekend! Encourage your young musician to put on a little performance of something they've learned to play. Students should announce the piece they are playing and demonstrate their best posture, position, air, and embouchure (mouth-wind players/grip-percussion). Remember to applaud their efforts and the musician should bow to the applause like a "real" performance. These small performances will help prepare your child for our in-class playing tests and evening concert December 10. If they are having trouble matching the correct pitch (brass players especially) try playing along with the recordings on the Band Webpage as it will allow them to hear the song.

PE strip should be washed this weekend and returned next week.
