Welcome back!

As the school year moves on you should be hearing improvement in your young musician. We are working through our books and learning some new notes and concepts. Please keep encouraging your students to practice during the week.

The sixth graders are going to start looking forward to junior high school. When they get their information for junior high school please keep orchestra or band in mind. It is a great opportunity for kids in junior high. Sports and music are not an issue at the junior high level.

Fun music facts:

Listening to music helps you get a more effective work out. It increases your endurance by 15%.

20% of kids learn to play a musical instrument and 70% of adults wish they had.

Music students consistently score higher on reading and math tests.

Keep supporting your music student and their hard work.
