Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter
September 29, 2016
Week of 9.26-9.30
This week in orchestra students have continued to work on positions, bow hold, note reading, and producing good sounds on their instruments. All classes have started work on putting the bow on the string and pulling straight bows.
If you see your student practicing with the bow, make sure that they are placing the bow right in between the bridge and the fingerboard and pulling parallel to the string. Their bow holds should be relaxed.
We started our annual fundraiser this past Tuesday with daily prizes for students to earn. This fundraiser helps pay for supplies for the students, entry fee to our contest in May, bus transportation to event, instruments, and general upkeep of the instruments in the orchestra room. Thank you so much for your support of the orchestra program!
Have a great weekend!
