I have been placed on several teams within the school and district that will require me to be absent from school at different times throughout the year. I'm working to better communicate information to you. We're on a different school schedule this year. Often, I do not get the opportunity to get to my computer between 9:00am and 3:30pm. Please be patient with me.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING EVENT CHANGES!
NO MASTERCLASS THIS SATURDAY! IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED!
Be sure your students are prepared...
Please encourage students to bring their instruments and band book each day they are assigned to band. I have seen several cases where students have left their instruments at home because they assumed I would not be at school and were unprepared for class. In the past when that has happened, students created a bad habit in leaving their instrument at home. Please help me encourage students to be prepared.
Purchase Band Book for $9
Students who have not purchased a band book should be sure they have one. Books are $9 and can be purchased from Mr. Wilcher. Students have been provided with the first three pages of the book until they are able to purchase a book for themselves.
Parents and Guardians, please check your child's instrument to be sure that it is properly labeled. I always suggest attaching a sturdy luggage tag and using something to help your child identify his or her instrument (i.e. ribbon).
OBOE, CLARINET, SAXOPHONE PLAYERS!!!
All of the instruments listed below require a reed in order to play their instrument. Students should have 3 working reeds at all times. If your students needs to purchase a reed, they are:
Oboe - $12 per reed
Clarinet - $2 per reed ($18 per box of 10)
Saxophone - $2 per reed ($20 per box of 10)
