Good work at lessons/practice records need attention

Saturday, March 30, 2019 by Tom Rutt | Uncategorized

Lessons have been going well this week.  The 5th grade solos are coming along great and the 6th grade hymn projects are starting to be played.  

I've got a few students who are very good about bringing their practice records and many who need more practice time to build confidence in their playing.  We get many things done in lessons but we can accomplish so much more when the students have practiced.  Thanks!

Special Projects starting well...6th grade solos request

Sunday, March 24, 2019 by Tom Rutt | Uncategorized

We have everyone working on their "special projects" for the end of the year.  We do have two months of school left, but those months will go quickly so that's why we are working on these projects now.  5th graders are working on solos that they will play in pairs on May 1 after chapel.  6th graders are working on writing hymns for their instruments that will play after chapel on May 8 as part of a "hymn sing."

Our 6th grade students have been invited by the "Young at Heart" group at First English to play their band solos on Monday afternoon. It will be fun to share those solos with them.

Good work in lesson books this week

Lessons went very well for a week after the big concert. Thanks to those of you who were able to get some practice in this week.  Try to find time each day when you can get out your horn and practice.  Just like prayer, the more you do it, the better you get at it. Remember to start with something fun you like to play for your warm-up and then get to your scale practices and finish with working on your main lesson page. You can record your practice on our website or send me questions. Check with your parents for help logging on to the website. If they have questions, have them email or call me.
