Since our band room won't be open to anybody until August 15th, all of our summer band rehearsals will take place at Vanston Middle School. We always do summer band together with them. But, this year, it is at their place
You will receive another e-mail from me on August 1 that will have instructions on how to get your music. Can't get to a copier or envelops, so we are gong electronic this year! :-)

If you have any questions, e-mail me. I won't have a phone until AFTER summer band
First of all, I hope that you are having a GREAT summer!!!!!!! I am so very excited for the upcoming school year.
In order to get a jump start on playing your instrument, we are having a small summer camp for you to get started.
The dates are August 7 (Thursday), 8 (Friday), 11 (Monday), 12 (Tuesday).
The times are:
Oboes 3:00 - 4:30 PM
Bassoons 5:30 - 7 PM.
And, since our new Band Hall won't be open until August 15th, we will have to have these practice at Vanston MS. You will be in a class with their beginner oboes & bassoons.
It is IMPERATIVE that you are at the camps. Oboe and bassoon are hard to get started on. This teacher is an actual oboe or bassoon player, so their help will be INVALUABLE!!!!
We will have everything ready for you at the first practice :-)
Please comment below once you have read this and tell me if you will be there.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.
