Welcome to the Wonderful World of Band
Course Outline – Remind students to place it in their music duo-tang as the first two pages. The course outline explains most aspects of the course.
Folders – Grade 7 and 8 students will be asked to purchase a leatherette folder to keep music and books neat and in good shape. They look sharp and will remain the property of the student. If this is an issue for anyone, please contact me.
Jazz Band – There are two jazz bands at our school. Grade 8s play on Tuesday and Thursday during lunch hour. Grade 7s play on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 8:00 AM.
Black and Whites – Over the years this has been something I work very hard at. Clothing need not be new. Also, I can help provide clothing with proper notice. Black and whites are dress clothes. Dress shoes, black bottoms and a white top are the expected attire for concerts. Jeans, runners, and t-shirts are not appropriate.
