Dear Parents and Students,

Music-playing is to be enjoyed.  This enjoyment comes from  producing the sounds we want and turning that into music.
  We all practice in order to enjoy playing more!

Parents, encourage your child to develop playing skills through practicing and setting goals.  Your interest in
your child's music education is VERY important!  

 Students need to realize that
1.  Having a "social" life is not a daily event.
2.  Achieving goals for what you want out of     your music demands commitment.
 DO NOT over-extend.  You must have high energy and good health to perform well; and time to practice before you perform.
