My preferred method of communication is definitely email. However, while I will send you school messenger emails to update you on very important events, this website is where you'll consistently be able to find most everything having to do with 6th grade band at LMS.
For now, here are a couple things that each 6th grade band member can do to make sure that the beginning of their year is successful:
- Make sure to read and sign the Band Handbook. Most everything you need to know is inside of it. Following the link at the end and completing the signature page will be our first PRIDE grade.
- If you want extra information on the breakdown of the music standards, outside performance opportunities, and tips to give your kids on how to have a great practice session, be sure to check out the "Important Documents" link on the band homepage.
- Double-check the handbook to see that you have all required materials (black band binder with page savers, Essential Elements Book 1, instrument, school planner/chromebook, and pencil). This will be our second PRIDE grade and material checks will be done periodically throughout the year. If you have any trouble getting these materials, just send me an email.
- Go ahead and write those required rehearsals and concert dates down on the calendar! There are 3 sets of them over the course of the year.
If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to email me.
Here's to a great year of music-making!
