If you are interested, fill out the form below and I will check and see if your schedule will work for it. If you are not interested , have a great rest of your summer!
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 summer camp for you to get started. It will be at McDonald on the following dates:
The dates are August 6 (Thursday), 7 (Friday), 10 (Monday), 11 (Tuesday).
The times are:
Oboes 2:00 - 3:30 PM
Bassoons 5:00 - 6:30 PM.
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.
OK. The schedule is set. Please make plans to be there!!!!! Here is the handout that we gave on the last day of school that explains some stuff about summer band. Click Here.
