Band students have had 7 lessons so far this quarter, each one building on skills from the previous, and this week’s lesson was particularly challenging. Young musicians need to work repetitively to build muscle memory – which doesn’t always sound like music at first. As our students practice at home, with other family members at home too, here is a reminder of how you can help support them 🙂
Our 17th annual costume contest will take place in class on Thursday 10/30 and Friday 10/31. Extra points if your costume is home-made, or in any way musical. Looking forward to celebrating this fun holiday with you!
