Time to get your tuners!

Parents,


It is time to start teaching our students how to tune their instruments ON THEIR OWN! This is very easy for them to do with the help of a tuner. You can find tuners on amazon, sharmusic.com, or Dallas Strings. If you have any questions on how to order a tuner please email us!

Winter Concert on February 22nd at 6:30 p.m.

Mark your calendars! Our next performance is on Monday, February 22nd starting at 6:30 p.m. in the LHS auditorium. This performance is a Mandatory for a Major grade. Students need to arrive at 5:30 p.m. in their Orchestra t-shirt and nice pants.
