    I am SO glad you decided to join band this year! Get ready for a whirlwind of fun! You will learn everything you need to know to play the instrument of your choice and join together with your classmates in playing some awesome band music!

    Learning to play an instrument is an experience that will last your whole lifetime! The friends you make, the discipline you work on, and the skills you develop, ALL contribute to the character and brain growth you gain while learning something that is absolutely FUN! No doubt about it, researchers are finding out what we've suspected all along...MUSIC, specifically learning to play an instrument, makes you smarter! It works both sides of the brain at the same time, increasing and connecting the synapses in your brain! Parents, thank you ahead of time for your support of your child's band adventure! (I will be including some "helpful hints" as we go along, as I know it can be a little daunting at times.)

     

    Excited? Me too! I can't wait to start! Hold on to your hats...As I said it will be a whirlwind of fun!
