IGLLS Band

First Lessons went well

Saturday, September 5, 2020 by Tom Rutt | Uncategorized


It was nice to see everyone again at lessons.  I thought you all did very well considering it has been quite some time since we practiced together.   Remember to check your lesson sheet to make sure you practice all of your exercises at home.  And most important of all, remember to play some songs you like.  That’s what I do when I practice.  After I do the things I need to do, I always play some songs I enjoy.  That’s what makes band fun - making your “own music.”


 6 th grade band at the middle school on Tuesdays/Thursdays and will not start until Sept. 15. I know Mrs. Boyens is looking forward to seeing everyone.  


Let’s Have Fun,

Welcome back to band at IGLLS.  Hopefully you all had a nice summer break and are looking forward to joining up with your school mates as we begin a new year at IGLLS. Lessons are 20 minutes and will usually be held on the stage. Remember to use the hand sanitzer and put on your mask before lessons.

Looks like we've come to the end of the school year.  Thanks everyone for working so hard on your band lessons. It's been fun playing with you and helping you grow as musicians. Try to keep up your skills over the summer and I'll look forward to seeing all of you next year. 

I have emailed a 3rd and final lesson video on Youtube for you. It's a "Favorites" Band Lesson so I think you'll have fun playing along with me. Hope you all have a nice summer break!

Keep playing your instruments and having fun,

Mr. Rutt
