4th and 5th grade band is coming to Mason!!
In band students will learn their favorite instrument and become part of a music club! The instruments offered are flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone and snare drum.
Band rehearsals will begin the week of October 12th and will be every Wednesday after school from 3:30-4:30. Students are expected to commit to band for the entire school year and be present at every rehearsal. Students are also expected to perform in two concerts: April 15th, 2017 (Music Festival) and May 10th, 2017 (Spring Concert).
Students will need to rent or buy the instrument of their choice and a method book. I highly recommend that students rent their instruments from Indie Music in Milford, NH, if they do not own the instrument. I have attached a rental agreement form from Indie Music so that you can read the guidelines. If you decide to rent from Indie Music, you can go to Indie Music to sign the agreement and pick up the rental. You can also fill out the rental agreement with the sign-up sheet and return it to the school with a check for the first month rental fee. I will be making several trips to Indie Music and can have the instrument and method book by the first rehearsal as long as the first month has been paid for. The method book that needs to be purchased, Tradition of Excellence by Bruce Pearson and Ryan Nowlin. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you there!
