Because of the snow day, the rehearsal tonight at Westhill has been moved to next Tuesday, March 20th from 6-8pm. Everyone stay safe and warm!
Wonderful job tonight everyone! You did amazingly. 🙂
No instruments tomorrow or Monday for 7th and 8th grade, and no jazz band tomorrow afternoon. 6th grade will still rehearsal as usual.
Practice tracks for the Winter Concert are up in the practice track section! Please use these to help you in your home practice. The concert is in 2 weeks so make sure you are practicing!!!
There will be an extra help session after school from 3-4 on Thursday for anyone starting out on a new instrument. If you are having trouble with any of the basics of your instrument, please join us in the auditorium to get some individual instruction. See you then!
Jazz band will unfortunately not be starting yet, so there will be no Thursday rehearsals at this point. I will let everyone know when I get the go-ahead to begin. Thanks!
I will be ordering shirts on October 7th, and shirts will arrive the week of October 23rd. Please make sure to have your order in on time so you can get a shirt! I won’t be ordering extras. The shirts are $8 – everyone got an order form in their TOR Handbook.
Hello everyone! In addition to the normal information provided on our website, this year we are also going to have a band blog that band parents and students can follow if they would like to receive reminders, updates and other important information sent to their email.
Parents will still receive the normal emails about cancellations and events, but the blog will remind parents/students about important deadlines for assignments, days when students do not need instruments, and other less pressing details. We’ll also post pictures and recordings from concerts and parades. You can sign up to receive emails to notify you if the blog is updated, or you can just check in every now and again to see if there’s anything new.
Our next event is the Veteran’s Day Parade on November 13th. Permission forms will go home next week. We hope to see everyone there!
