Welcome Back! Summer is over and we are all back in school… still at home… but back in school! I am looking forward to beginning undoubtedly my most unusual start of school in my 24 years of teaching. The challenges will be spread out to everyone, but I am excited to try and overcome many of them, if not all of them, and still create some great music and even greater community.
7:40am Orchestra and 8:25am Band will be a major shock to all households, including my kids’ schools, my wife’s work, and the two dogs all in our house. Should be an exciting year!
Students should be linked into their Google Classroom and Remind system for links and info, and we will try to keep a clear line of communication through our weekly emails. Please look to these for the answers you seek. If we miss something, or you need greater clarification, please don’t hesitate to ask (email).
Finally, last week, the Band and Color Guard worked hard on their new fall show Influencers: Black Artists Who Impacted the World. The premiere of the show will be sometime in October, but we wanted to give you the Preview Show feeling, so we have a video for you. All of this was recorded by your children in their own homes, away from anyone else in the band (well.. except for siblings). So we hope you enjoy!
Have a great first week!
