Sloan Creek Orchestra Newsletter

January 12, 2017

Parents,


Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Chipotle on Tuesday night! We really appreciate your support of our program and look forward to our next Spirit Night on Feb. 21st at Palio's Pizza!!


All orchestra's are very busy preparing for our next performance. As a reminder, ALL students are to have their own tuner to use in class DAILY. See below for more information on what tuners work best for each instrument and how to purchase one.


This week all beginner classes have started tuning their own instruments using a tuner. Students can now tune their own instrument at home using fine tuners. If they have a string that needs to be fixed using pegs please have them wait and bring to a teacher to help them. All classes have also started working in a new time signature and are making big strides in tone production and position. Practice cards are still due every Thursday for them to earn pokeballs to use when they catch Pokemon on Friday!


Our next performance is at our Winter Concert on Monday, February 27th starting at 6:30.


If you have any questions please let us know!
