We have made it through the first few days of school! The band students have been busy getting settled in. At this point each student has been assigned an instrument locker and 7th and 8th graders have received their folders. 6th graders will receive folders once we begin passing out concert music. 6th grade students will begin their group lessons next week starting Monday.
If you are a 6th grade student/parent and do not yet have an instrument please try and have one ASAP. If you need guidance on specific brands or vendors please don't hesitate to call. Instruments purchased at big-box stores or online auction sites, while much less expensive, are not quality instruments. Typically, these types of instruments are not made of high quality material and do not have replacement parts readily available. If you have questions about getting an instrument please contact a director!
Next week we will be kicking off our Fall Fundraiser. We are once again selling the discount cards. They have coupons and offers from several local and Canton area businesses. The cards will cost $15. Our goal for the fundraiser is to raise enough money to purchase a new bassoon for the middle school. Your participation is greatly appreciated!
Thank you for your patience as we get started. We'll get into a consistent routine in the coming days. Students should begin bringing their instruments home for practice next week.
As always, if you have questions or concerns please contact a director. Have a great weekend!
