December Lessons and Notes
Dear RES 5th Band Parents,
The December lessons schedule has been posted. The schedule days (Day 1, Day 2, etc.) stay consistent throughout the month.
Please note two days that we do not have lessons the week of 12/3. There are logistics issues with space to teach because of health screenings taking place in the instrumental music rooms and on stage. I will try to reschedule those lessons if possible.
A few notes:
- The students have really come a long way! I hope that you have been serenaded at home with versions of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Lightly Row, and even some holiday music!
- Schoology is up and running for students in band. Each student should have access to the band course on their schoology account. There are resources, videos, and an opportunity to participate in a blog/class discussion for two songs.
- Early morning band rehearsals will begin in January - most likely the week following our return. A full schedule will be sent out in the middle of December. Rehearsals are on Wednesday mornings, at RES, at 7:45 A.M. When the full calendar is sent, you will see that there are some weeks when we will not be meeting because of conflicts, etc. I will be sending reminders before each rehearsal, and will be inviting you to sign up for text message reminders that I send out as well.
I will continue posting this schedule to my teacher page, and this announcement, so that you have access to it at any time. As always, if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email me at any time.
