5th Grade Band Information Note

BEGINNER BAND INFORMATION


Dear Parents,


In the next few weeks your child will have an opportunity to enrich their education with instruction on a band instrument. This will provide your child with the opportunity to learn skills like self-discipline and time management that will help them throughout their lives. Participation in band also helps to foster cooperation, self-expression, coordination, poise, self-confidence, and creativity.


When guiding a student to select an instrument on which they can be successful, I will be evaluating musical aptitude, ease of playing various instruments, and physical characteristics such as hand size, and mouth shape. After I have evaluated all these characteristics, I will determine which instrument will best fit your child’s strengths.


After this process, I will provide your child with a note that states which instrument they would be most successful playing. I will then bring a copy of that information to the beginning band instrument selection session where we will make the final decision regarding the instrument that your child will play. I will limit the number of players allowed to play in certain sections based upon instrumentation needs.


The beginning band instrument selection session will be held on September 18th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm in the Lakeview Elementary Library. At this session, West Music Store will bring an assortment of rental instruments and a supply of our method book for each instrument. I highly recommend renting or purchasing an instrument through this company as they will send a representative to our school weekly to pick up instruments for repair. More information about their rent-to-own program can be found on their website, www.westmusic.com. Attendance at this open house is not required, but recommended.


If you are unable to rent or buy an instrument, I would still like to provide an opportunity to your child to participate in band. Some instruments may be available for rent at a lower price through the school and there are some scholarship opportunities for students who may need them. If you would like to ask about these opportunities, please feel free to call or email me so that I can help you.



Sincerely,


Mr. Morgan

2018 Summer Band Concert Info

posted Jun 13, 2018, 6:59 AM by Tyler Morgan

Dear Parent/Guardian,


Our first performance for the summer band program will be on Thursday, June 21st at 7:15 pm at the bandshell on the square. Students should arrive by 7:00 pm. They can wear casual clothes to the performance. Following our performance, there will be the weekly concert by the Municipal Band. You are encouraged to stay and enjoy the performance. The ice cream social will be sponsored by the Centerville Performing Arts Boosters. Please support them, as they support us throughout the school year. The next performance will be on Saturday, June 23rd, at the Children’s Arts Festival. The performance is at 10:00 am, also in the bandshell on the square. Students should arrive around 9:30 am. Again, the attire is casual clothing for the performance. We strongly encourage all students to perform in both concerts, if they are able. Every student is crucial in order to have a quality performance. If your student is unable to attend one of the performances, please contact either one of us. You can call or text to the following numbers listed below. We thank you for allowing your student to participate this summer!


Thank you for your continued support of the Centerville Band Program!


Sincerely,


Mr. Morgan
