Other Notes:

– It’s essential that all students continue to practice 30 minutes per day. It helps build muscle and technique that allows them to become better musicians. We appreciate anything you can do to help encourage your student.

– If you haven’t yet gotten your Band/Chorus Shirts, SeaWorld trip, or Star Wars money in, please get it turned in ASAP.
