Monster Concert

It's hard to believe but we're coming closer to the end of band for this year, and that means performances! We have our district elementary band monster concert next week. This is the concert where every elementary band student in the district gets together to put on one concert all together. Here are the details:

Date: Monday, April 16
Place: West Jordan Middle School, 7550 Redwood Road
Time: Rehearsal starts at 4:00, dinner break from 6:15-6:45, concert starts at 7:00
Dress: White shirts, black pants or skirts (students can bring clothes to change into during the dinner break, or wear their concert dress the whole time)

At this concert, every student will be on stage at the same time for the whole concert. That's why we have a long rehearsal right before the concert, we need to put together all of the songs. We'll be playing 8 songs at this concert, and the first time we play them together will be at the rehearsal that day! It's a long rehearsal for a relatively short concert, but it's fun to have all of the kids performing on stage at the same time. 

For the dinner break we will stay at the high school and eat in the cafeteria. Students need to bring a sack lunch, and parents are welcome to come and eat with them. Every year, I've also collected money from anyone who just wants to go in on some pizzas.This is not required, it's up to you if you want to go in on pizza or have your student bring a dinner from home. If you want to chip in for pizza please let me know and have the money to me by Friday this week. $2-3 is all I ask to go in on pizza.

Let me know if you have any questions about monster concert next week. Thanks!

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!
