   I have my own particular sorrows,        loves, delights; and you have yours.    But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope,   love, belong to all of us, in all times     and in all places.  Music is the only          means whereby we feel these 
      emotions in their universality.

The bands and orchestras at every school are now in their first full week of classes, 
making all kinds of strange sounds.....


These first weeks are very exciting, as everything we're doing 
is new and different.

Please encourage your children to practice, 
to show you what they're practicing, 
and to try new things!

Remember, practicing isn't just to learn skills--
we also have to train muscles. 
As such, any time spent with the instrument is good time!

to see when your child has class.

Mr. Alcorn and Ms. Rutka

If you have questions, please leave a message for one of us using the
