I am greatly looking forward to our first morning band rehearsal on Monday, September 19.


I have attached some important drop off instructions to keep everyone safe in the parking lot. Please read these carefully and contact me if you have any questions.


Due to the large number of people arriving at Liberty around the same time, please follow the guidelines in the attachment in order to have a safe morning band drop off. Thank you in advance for being patient and extra careful in the parking lot!

What to practice for 5th Grade Cadet Band?

All band students should review all the exercises on pages 6 and 7 in preparation for our first morning band rehearsal on Monday, September 19! I can't wait to hear us all play together for the first time!
