NO LAREDO CLASSES TONIGHT

Hopefully you all got the info and handouts by now.
See you next Monday at Laredo, usual times.

students meeting at Fox Hollow

Same schedule today. We are meeting at regularly scheduled times. Please don't let the Laredo posts confuse you.  

Your Fox Hollow concert, if you are beginners, with band and choir, is coming up on:
May 9th at 6:30 PM, in Fox Hollow gym.  
Then, we play the same pieces, the next morning, for your school assembly at 9:15AM so you will need to bring your instruments in that Tuesday morning. More on details coming on this next week, and in posts over the weekend. 

Third years. Stay tuned. I may try to get you over to Campus Middle school on the 10th, or another evening, to do some work on Star Wars and other pieces with the second years. Or m I may just give you some options on showing up the best nights for your own situation, and tke it from there. At any rate, I feel you will be ok, just having done all this before.  You are signed up to play in the May 18 concert at Laredo, and the May 19th concert at Prairie. Arrival times on both those concerts will be 6:30, with concert beginning at 7:00. 

Laredo Students, 1st and 2nd year

Thank you so much, to those of you, who were able to come over to Campus last night!  I know it was not possible for all, but I was so glad those that could , did. 

It was fun to get the two groups together! We are about three weeks out from concerts.  Practice up on those parts that give you a little trouble. Take it slow, then take it fast .  Slow down agwin, then twke it fast.  Say your note names.  Tap your rhythms out, while saying notes, if your tired of holding instrument.  Then go back to your piece on yr instrument. Make sure your carving out practice time. Even a little, is better than none. 

2nd years, you will be playing together for both concertts, so that was wonderful to have you go over, especially to get to practice with band. Star Wars is going to be fuuuuuuun!!!!!

Ok Laredo....NO WEDNESDAY CLASS TONIGHT. NONE.  WE DON'T MEET AGAIN, TILL THIS Monday, at Laredo, same times.  
Next week's schedule for Laredo students
May 2 -normal schedule at Laredo
May 4-no class
Now, go make some music!
