Happy Friday to you all-
I hope this finds you well and getting ready to enjoy the weekend. Thank you to all of your that remembered to bring your concert attire in for photos this past week. I hope that we will be able to get the into the yearbook for us to remember for years to come.
Please continue to practice!! The only way this ensemble(s) get better is if you put in the time outside of the school day. You should be practicing a min of 30 minutes a day!!!! Even though we might not have a lot of music in your folders, you can be practicing to make your tone better, your intonation can get better, your skills on all of your equipment, a visual move in the show, a scale that we will be testing next week, aka…there is something you can get better at right now. Put the time in now to see the benefits later.
