Startup Camp is This Friday!
Hello Grade 7 Families! I am very excited to see instruments in your students hands today and tomorrow. This is the start of an exciting musical journey!
Startup Camp is This Friday, all Grade 7 Band students are expected to attend. I have professional musicians coming in to work with your students on Friday, so your students will be staying after school that day. Later on that night they will be performing in their first-ever Concert Band Performance, just for you! Students will also receive marks for their participation.
The itinerary is as follows;
12:30 PM - School is out, students will be served Subway lunch.
1:00 PM - Clinics start, all students
2:20 PM - Mini-Recital (professionals perform for the students)
2:45 PM - Second set of Clinics
4:00 PM - Switch to Full Band Rehearsal, first time ever
5:15 PM - Team-building games
5:45 PM - Picasso's Pizza Supper
6:15 PM - Doors open at the school for our family audience members
6:30 PM - Grade 7s perform their first performance ever.
6:45 PM - Cleanup
7:00 PM - Startup Camp is done.
Students will be learning valuable skills on how to put their instruments together, take care of their instruments (and your investment), play with great sound, the first most-important notes, and prepare their performance for you, and they will get that instruction from specialists on their instruments in a more one-on-one way. It is an invaluable experience, and we can thank the Highwood Lions for making it possible for us.
I'm looking forward to seeing you Friday night, and getting this year started with your students!
