    End-of-year Instructions

     

    DO NOT LEAVE INSTRUMENTS IN THE BAND ROOM OVER THE SUMMER!

     

    If you need to return a rental instrument to Music and Arts, do not leave it with Mr. Breshears.  Return it directly to Music and Arts.

     

    Do not let a full week pass without playing your instrument!

     

    Here is what to practice over the summer:

     

    1. Long tones and basic sound production
    2. Scales
    3. Band music from the previous school year
    4. Solo music for your instrument (can be found online or purchased at Music and Arts or another music store)
    5. Exercises from the method book (Tradition of Excellence)

     

     

    This has been an amazing year in band.  Thank you all for your participation.  And thank you for continuing to move this program toward excellence.  I hope that your experience this year will stay with you for a lifetime, and that you will always continue to develop your love of music.

     

    HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
