Good Lessons

Our lessons have been going well. This is a good time to make good progress in our lesson books.  The songs and things we learn there make our band songs with Mrs. Bush and Mrs. Boyens go so much better. The 5th grade students have one song to work on for their next concert.  6th grade students will need to  be practicing their solos every day as we will start practicing with Mrs. Kaldahl after chapel this Wednesday.

5th Grade band is TUESDAY/THURSDAY AT THE MS. 6th grade band at the MS on  Mon/Wed/Fri.

Practice like you are performing,

Mr. Rutt
