This Week in Band at PMMS (Feb 8-12, 2021)

THANK YOU!

Thank you for a great first week of Semester 2 band lessons. Many of your children moved to a new lesson time. We appreciate their flexibility AND adaptability. If your child ever accidentally misses a lesson just have them email their lesson teacher to see when they can make it up. Our goal in lessons the next few weeks will be to advance in our lesson books and continue our work on scales and fundamentals.

Used Instrument Marketplace

Ward Brodt has created a FANTASTIC new service - a Used Instrument Marketplace. This portion of their website will contain quality used instruments they have for sale. This is a terrific new option for band families. All of the instruments have been inspected and adjusted by the repair staff at Ward Brodt and come with a 1-year maintenance agreement. In fact, they are offering 10% off used instruments from Feb 8-22.


You will see many options on the website. We really like Yamaha instruments, but feel free to reach out to us for specific advice.

Keep Sending Us Those Photos!!

With your permission, we would love to share photos of your child and/or family with your band sign on our social media platforms. If you would like to participate send your photo to: cpgleas@sunprairieschools.org
