Missed A Band Lesson? New Make Up Procedure
Clearly, this is not as good as having a lesson with someone in person, however given our situation, it does provide the opportunity for us to still here your child and to provide some feedback.
In general, your kids are doing a GREAT job of remembering their lesson times. We are VERY proud of the work they have done and continue to do. We will review this option with your children but wanted you to know as well.
The TWO steps to make a up a lesson are:
1) Record the lesson assignment on the Flipgrid Link below.
2) Alert the lesson teacher that the recording has been made.
