    Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

    Students will be able to take lessons and practice their instruments at school and/or at home. Students that will be attending school "in person" will be reporting to the stage in the gym for lessons. Students that use the option to stay home will receive lessons through Microsoft Teams.

    All instrumental students will be using Microsoft Teams whether attending in school instruction or home instruction. This helps with commuication, lesson scheduling, and use of lesson materials digitally. Students will be added to an instrument team for their specific instrument and level of instruction. Video lessons will be "live streamed" through Teams following a rotating schedule. Schedules will be posted during the first week of school and followed through Teams.

    There will be information for all beginning band students coming out during the week of September 13th, when you will all see the band demonstrations and how to sign up for lessons and beginner lesson schedules for each instrument. All instrument rental information will be released the week of demonstrations.
