Sun Prairie Band Department News
August 28, 2020
We are thrilled to welcome you all back to a new school year! Undoubtedly, this school year will look a bit different. However, we are committed to providing the very best educational and social experience possible through music. The role and importance of the arts have never been more essential in our children's lives. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to music education in Sun Prairie. We are excited to get started!
Band Beginners Are Off And Playing!
We flipped our instruction by providing instructional videos for the students to watch prior to our daily Zoom meetings. All of the students did a great job and make significant progress during the week. We are excited to start the students who could not make it and those who are still joining. Please let your friends and neighbors know that it is not too late to sign -up!
Many thanks to Shelley Weiss, Summer School Administrator, who supported our beginning band program in many ways. We appreciate the support and commitment to these eager, young musicians!
