BAND SCHEDULE THIS WEEK:
Well, my Band Family....
It's been a long week! It's been strange to not be at school, working hard, and making music with you. Some of you may have heard of Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser, he is a retired band director that works with students on leadership. He says: "It's all about your attitude: 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it."
I am hoping we will have some time to be in school before the end of the school year. Until then (and until we possibly have mandatory e learning days), here are my thoughts:
1) Keep playing. Practice your fundamentals (scales, lip slurs, long tones). You can literally find more materials than you could possibly need online. Just keep playing - no matter what it is.
2) If you don't have your instrument at home, I live 10 minutes away, call me and I will help you get your instrument.
3) Keep in communication with each other. Lean on your Band Family. This is a great time to send a message to that person in band that was there for you, musically, personally, or supportive. Reach out and keep in touch with each other.
Let me know if you need anything and I hope to see you all soon.
