6th Band Students Need This Warm-up Book
Sound Innovations Ensemble Development For Young Concert Band.
Many of you already have this book through your rental plan with Ward Brodt. Those of you who own your instrument or are using school instrument may not. Please check your chid's folder and if you don't see it, order it ASAP. Here is a link to Amazon to place your order.
Lesson Reports Launched
Our hope is that this immediate feedback and communication about your child's growth and performance will provide you with valuable information to help support their learning. We would encourage your young musicians to practice daily for at least 20 minutes. Our focus nearly every week will be on the lesson book (Daily Routine for Perc). Thank you for helping to "build" this time into their schedule at home.
We hope that you find the lesson reports helpful. Please note that we will add both of the email addresses that we have on file for this week's reports (last week we sent it to just one parent/guardian email).
Where Can We Find Information About Band This Year?
1. This newsletter will be sent every Sunday afternoon. It will contain the plan for the week, updates on classwork, and special events or opportunities.
2. Our PMMS Band Website will have weekly lesson plans, resources, links, and our weekly lesson schedule. I will also keep links to all of our newsletters on this website if you ever need to look for something shared previously but lost it in your inbox. Consider the website as the "go to" place to find out information this year.
