We've had a great (but short) week here in the Band Dept. Each group is now well into working on our music for the upcoming Winter Concert. Please ask and encourage your student to play for you at home. We'd like every student to spend a portion of their daily practice time on their concert music in addition to their sectional assignments. Consistent practice is the key to success!
The marching band will be performing at two area band competitions at Copley HS tomorrow (10/19) and New Philadelphia (10/26). The Copley performance time is 6:30pm and the New Phila. performance time is 8:45. Check out the HS band's Facebook page or website for more detailed itineraries of these events. The end of the marching season is upon us as State Marching Band Finals approaches. Our students have worked very hard since late July to earn the privilege to perform at state finals!
Once marching band is over, Mr. B, Mr. Stankey, and Mrs. Markiewicz will be offering private lessons. There are also other area private instructors we can recommend. We HIGHLY encourage private study with a qualified instructor. Lessons are typically 30 minutes long and are reasonably priced. Any student taking a weekly 30 min lesson will receive 60 min. of practice time on their practice sheet! Please contact one of us if you are interested in lessons.
Have a great weekend!
