Students are expected to bring their instrument, music book, and a pencil to and from school on the days they have class. To avoid accidents with instruments, students should NOT leave their instruments at school on the days they do not have class.
Our calendar includes events at Moore Middle School and Pomona High School. We view our classes as a direct link to these school and encourage students and their to attend as many extra events as they would like. Taking advantage of these opportunities will help spur your student's interest in the program! The events within the calendar with asterisks (**) are required for students to be at.
Our first event of the year is our 5th grade day at Pomona on August 27th. This is a field trip for all fifth grade students to come and hear about what band and orchestra is like, not only in elementary school, but as the program progresses into middle and high school.
The evening of August 27th is our instrument rental night at Pomona High School. Please come and get your child their instrument!
This is our instrumental music handbook full of rules and regulations as well as useful information about concert dates/times, class times and an FAQ section. The formatting is a little weird because it prints out into a little booklet :-)
Below that is our instrumental music registration form. Please fill it out and bring it to Mr. Reynolds, Mr. Reed, your classroom teacher, or the main office at your school. Your student received copies of both these papers on their first day of class.
Students are asked to spend approximately 50 minutes per week practicing their instruments (for example, 10 minutes per day, 5 days per week). Their practicing should be recorded on the practice card that was handed out in class. If your student loses their practice card, feel free to ask your teacher for another one, or simply print a new one out.
