Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. As I write this post, I am settled on the couch watching the Rose Bowl Parade. The Mason High School Marching Band will be marching in the parade today, and I’m looking forward to seeing several former students participating! What an exciting opportunity for all the students and families involved.
The Fall Term was very fun (for me, anyway – I loved the Wanted posters!). I think it was great for the students to focus on some practice techniques through the weekly jobs. Everyone made it to the 4th and final stop in the Wild West – The Practice Cactus – yahoo!
We are all going to stretch our creativity this Term – I think the curriculum will be different and very dynamic. To follow the creativity theme, the practice calendar this term is pretty exciting. But the file size is pretty large, so instead of emailing the term calendar, I thought I would make it available on the web site. If you have any issues downloading the calendar, please let me know and I can print a copy for your student.
Get your calendar by clicking HERE.
This term I do plan on getting back to tracking practice time and checking for parent signatures, so please keep that in mind and help support home practice by encouraging your student to record practice time.
I’m really looking forward to a fun 2016, full of music and learning!
