  • Student instruments should be coming home Monday or Tuesday. Please talk to your student about this if you do not see their instrument at home by Tuesday.
  • If your student is playing a school owned instrument next year, some of them will not get their instruments before school is out. We will be sending a few instruments in to the shop for repair and cleaning. The will be first in line for cleaning and when they are finished we will let you know so you can pick them up from the Tune Shop.
  • If you are playing a school owned instrument for the 2019-2020 school year you need to make sure you get your own mouthpiece for that instrument! Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a mouthpiece! I would highly recommend that you talk to Mr. Rathburn at the Tune Shop and have them help you with that purchase. They will help you find what you need at an affordable price as well as get you set up with cleaning kits, reeds, etc.
  • Make sure you check out the tab about summer music opportunities and find something to help you keep playing this summer! If you never pick up your instrument over the summer you'll be very behind when we come back and we don't want that to happen! 
  • John Philip Sousa Honor Band Music has been posted! Click on the following link to visit the website and download the audition music for your instrument: John Philip Sousa Honor Band. Don't let the music intimidate you! Auditions are not until October so you have plenty of time to work on it and get it ready to record. I would encourage all incoming 7th and 8th grade students to work on this music over the summer and tryout for this group!
  • I will be available via email over the summer but I will not be checking it every day. If you have a question that you need answered quickly I would highly recommend that you join our remind groups for the new school year so you can message me there. I will be on vacation with my family, at a convention, and on Annual Training in Texas with my Army unit for part of the summer so please understand that I may not be able to respond immediately to messages but I will do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
  • Use the following codes to join remind groups for next year. Make sure you join the correct group for your student!
