1. Intermediate and Advanced Band students will be performing the pre-show for 8th Grade Promotion on Thursday, June 13th. 8th grade students will be conducting! Attire - Nice clothes for 8th grade students, Band Tshirts and black pants for 7th grade students. Report Time - 8:20 AM.
2. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you and I wish you the best in all of your future musical endeavors!
All students should try to practice at least 20-30 minutes a day, three days a week during the summer to maintain and build their skills. Private lessons, jam sessions with friends, and soloistic music (online or from a local music store) are all good options to keep interest high.
This is my fourteenth year teaching music at Monte Vista and my twentieth year teaching in Pleasant Valley School District. I am excited to work with the talented musicians at this school to build a high-quality music program.
