Tuesday night is our awards and final, official, public goodbyes to our Seniors. It's always great to see them grow up and become amazing young adults, but also sad to see them go. Good luck, Seniors, in your next adventure in life. Keep pressing forward, but always remember where you were. See you all on Tuesday!
Student Leadership is by far the backbone of the Marching Band and the Instrumental Music Program. Without them the groups get stuck. Student leaders are there to import the traditions, skills, and mindset to all the members which leads to tremendous personal growth for the leaders as well. It is important that we all understand that leaders are built, trained and educated continuously. Each success and failure brings growth and enlightenment. It is important to remember that we all need to support our student leaders, present and future, so that we all can be successful.
This Friday, we have a great workshop coming into our band room. Everyone should come and take advantage of this opportunity to grow and be built into a better leader.
As we push into Band Student Leadership week, I wanted to say thank you to our current Senior Leadership and encourage our underclassmen to step up and make a difference in your band experience.
Leadership is not a line item on a college application, it is a stamp of oneself upon the music program through service and modeling the behavior and image we want for our program. Student leaders lead on and off the field and make the year's many needs, obstacles, and challenges possible and successful for all. Thank you all for your service and support this year and years to come!
I'm taking over Mr. Stone's thought this week… I'm hoping he's already sleeping by now!
On behalf of Mr. Stone, many thanks to all the parents who helped out in some way over these past couple of weeks and months – all the planning, helpers, food donations and servers – it is all so very appreciated! There is no way this program would survive and have such great successes without you! Your kids are so very talented and they continue to strive for new levels. So proud and happy for them!
Thank you for your support of Instrumental Music at LCHS!
Club LC was amazing once again! The night is my favorite night of music and community. It's a blast and everyone who was there felt the power of great music. There is more great music to come with the musical this week and Concerto Concert coming in a few weeks. Come out and see these great musicians and performers.
Club LC is my favorite gig of the year! It's a great time for everyone to relax, listen to some great music, and enjoy the community which surrounds our music program. Everyone is invited to come as it the best night in La Cañada, and I would hate for anyone to miss it!
I also wanted to just say thank you to all the parents for being, as always, tremendous supporters and advocates for our instrumental music program. So many aspects of our program are made possible from your generous support. It makes the teaching team’s jobs so much easier to accomplish and allows our students to make great strides in their musicianship, and their growth as young adults moving into the world of college and beyond.
Thank you all for making this journey for everyone possible.
Hope everyone has had a wonderful break. April is filled with great music events. Come see and enjoy these great student musicians and all that they do.
What an amazing week of stellar performances we had last week. All groups did such a fantastic job and all the hard work paid off.
This week doesn't slow down either. Off to Ireland on Wednesday. Follow the travel blog and see all the highlights of the trip. Send good travel thoughts for us the whole time we are away!
Thank you all and have a great week!
It’s an exciting week of concerts this week! These musicians have been working hard and are excited to perform for all of you. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Thank you all for a wonderful Dinner Show! It truly takes a village to support an instrumental music program, and I am so appreciative of this community and your generosity and support. Festival and Ireland are so close! Looking forward the next few weeks!
