Have a great summer!

Summer just started and I already miss all of the band students. I especially miss all of the 6th graders who are moving on to middle school, but I'm so excited for the opportunities you all will have in band in middle school and high school!

Those of you returning next year, don't let your instrument get dusty over the summer! I'm looking forward to another great year with all of you. Near the middle of August I'll have the online form ready to sign up for band again. I'll also have signup forms at back to school night and in the first day packet.

For those who are interested in joining band next year, feel free to explore this website! There is a lot of information and resources under the different tabs, and as always feel free to e-mail me with any questions!

Concert Tonight!

We have our end of year concert at Terra Linda tonight! The concert starts at 7:00, students should be there at 6:30. I'm so proud of each of these students and how much they worked and improved. We still have band rehearsals next week. We'll be working on improvising with the blues scale and passing off band ninja master levels.

For those in 6th grade, we will miss you next year and I'm so excited for the opportunities you'll have in middle school band! For those in 4th and 5th grade, hang on to your ninja master sheets and we'll pick up next year right where you left off.

See you tonight!

Upcoming concerts

1. December 15: Evening concert at Terra Linda. We will be performing with the Terra Linda choir that night. Songs for this performance will be the songs from the Beginning Band Kit #7 (in the binder, under other music). The beginning band will be playing Good King Wenceslas as well. The students will also be playing solos and duets at this concert. The concert starts at 6:30. We will be wearing our band shirts with tan khaki pants. If your student doesn't have tan khaki pants, just as close as you have will work.

2. December 21: We will play Jolly Old St. Nicholas as part of the school wide singing in the round assembly. We'll choose from the same songs as our other concert. The assembly starts as 10:00. 

I've also told the students that they can attend a performance that I'll be playing in at West Jordan High School. Salt Lake Symphonic Winds (the group I play with) will be performing with the West Jordan High band next week, Tuesday November 29, starting at 7:30. It's a free concert and any student who can attend will be rewarded with a prize from the prize box. It's not required but it will be a great concert. 

Any questions, let me know!
