With Instrument Rentals Now Done, We Can Finally Begin!
Instrument Rental Night took place last night. Now we are looking to begin playing in class.
This means your student is expected to have their instrument by Tuesday, October 6 in the school. If you intend to rent through Long & McQuade, you will need to do so through them by the end of Saturday, October 3 if you want them to deliver your instrument to the school. Any orders placed before that time will be delivered to the school on Monday, October 5. Watch the video from the Instrument Rental Night for more details.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO GET INSTRUMENT CARE KITS!
This is truly an exciting time! Students will want to try their new instruments right away. They are encouraged to do so, and you can help them simply by giving them time and space to do it. Permit them a chance to make their strange first sounds in private, so that they can go through the potentially embarrassing first sounds before sharing things with you. And encourage them, no matter how much they resemble a dying duck. These first sounds are super important, and must be nurtured both at school and at home.
Thank you again for all your support!
Mr. Windsor will provide you with some interesting hints, help, advice, and resources on this page.
