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 VANSTON MS on the following dates:
The dates are August 1 (Wednesday), 2 (Thursday), 3 (Friday), 6 (Monday).
The times are:
Oboes: 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Bassoons: 3:00 pM - 4:30 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!!!!
The cost to you is $0!!!
We will have everything you will need ready for you at the first practice :-)
Please fill out the form below once you have read this and tell me if you will be there.
Also, if you attend the camp, you can go to Hawaiian Falls with us on Wednesday. It is not required, but we would love to have you go with us. More information on that later. It will be $28 and will cover transportation to the park , admission, and lunch.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me or text me at (470) 222-6312 (not a phone number, just for texting)
