Your syllabus forms must be signed by you and your parents and returned to me by Friday. This is your first grade of the year - all or nothing - 100% or 0%. If you need another copy of the syallabus, go to the homepage and click the button. That will take you to the syllabus, and you can print one off from there.
What a fantastic first week back at school! Thank you, students and parents who I've met, for extending a warm welcome to me. I absolutely love being a Calvary Eagle! I am now definitely looking forward to a fantastic year!
This week, we got back into the swing of playing. We worked on long tones and talked about the meaning of "concert pitch." We also played some short tunes in the blue (second year) Standard of Excellence books.
Students, I've had such a blast this week! Let's keep up the hard work! Practice practice!
Next week: We will be passing out the red Standard of Excellence books. You will also get your new binder slots. So please have your binder!
Have a great weekend!
