Parental involvement is essential to student success.  
Here are some ways that you can help your child succeed in music:
  • Make sure your child is practicing every day.  Consistent practice reinforces new skills on their instrument and voice.  Ideally, your child should be practicing 5 days per week for 20 minutes at a time.
  • Be aware of your child's progress.  Students should be passing one page per week.

Sixth grade is an exciting year in the band program! Between the concerts and solo performances, our students are becoming mature musicians at an early age. Our band performs three concerts as a group each school year. Individuals band students perform at the Middle School Solo Festival in May.
