We had good practices this week with our 6th grade band solos.  The students will be playing their solos after chapel on Wednesday as a way to prepare for the solo festival next Tuesday.  Mrs. Boyens has sent a tentative schedule out to the parents. If you haven't received it, send her an email at jboyens@spencerschools.org. All of our 6th graders will play in Center 3 at 5:00. Owen will also be playing in Center 3 at 5:30.

5th graders are sounding better and better on their Parade of Bands songs. Let's keep up the practice or get started on it.

Lots to practice

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 by Tom Rutt | Uncategorized

We have lots of things to practice.  5th graders have 3 songs so far for their part of the parade of bands concert and 6th graders have their band concert songs and solos to work on.  

6th grade band solos need to be practiced EVERY DAY.  Try memorizing a measure or two. This helps you work on the technical stuff like fingerings and helps put the song into your head so when you play it, the song should just come out on "automatic pilot."

th  Grade band this week is  Monday & Tuesday. th  grade band is Monday & Wednesday.
