Have Fun with regular practice

Regular practice is important to help each of you sound better.  You "play" like you "practice."  If you practice your lesson books each day, you'll find the songs get easier.  Find a time each day that you can practice and when it gets to that time, get out your horn and practice.  Each day you'll sound better on your songs.

6th graders have picked their band solos for the 6th Grade Solo Festival on Feb. 26.  You need to work each day on your solos.  Practices with your piano accompaniment begin on Jan. 31.  Please know your part so we can begin to fit it with its piano part. 

5 th Grade band this week is  Monday & Thursday.  6 th grade band is Monday, Wednesday & Friday.

Take care,

Mr. Rutt
