Practice Makes Perfect

All students have a homework assignment due at their weekly lesson.  You should hear your students practicing at home.


Spring is a very busy time for everyone.  The students and Ms. Kluga have talked about the privilege of attending our spring festivals.  You should hear your student practicing (and improving!). A reminder to students that 30 minutes of practice 5 days a week is more effective than one marathon cram-session the night before their lesson.  


Ms. Kluga is always available after school to help students.  The band room is open everyday after school for students to practice, and students are encouraged to practice during their free periods throughout the day.
