Hello band families! As you know, we are unable to run band as an option at the school at this time. While this makes me sad, I’m excited to offer the students in grades 7-9 a virtual band option this year instead. Virtual band will be done through Google Classroom. I will post videos to help your child play better, tips for improved sound, and music to practice at home. Students are also encouraged to sign up for Smartmusic, which has thousands of pieces of band music as well as method books to walk students through learning how to play their instrument. I’m excited for Christmas, when the band parent council has generously agreed to provide a sound engineer for us so that we can make an awesome virtual performance video of the students playing the music that I will give them to learn for it.
Hopefully your child got a form last week with information about virtual band. If not, sign up in the virtual band form below! If you have questions please email Mrs. Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
