Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter

Week of 10.10-10.14


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. We have been working very hard for our first concert that is quickly approaching on October 17th!

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.

Cookie Dough Money and Forms were due this past Tuesday, if you have not turned it in yet, please turn in ASAP.

Our concert is NEXT MONDAY, October 17th. Looking forward to showing off everything we have learned.

Have a great weekend!
