Happy 2014!!

Well, January is almost over, but things still feel like the new year in the music program!  Band and chorus are both busy sight-reading and getting acquainted with new music, and the general music classes are all settling back into a more "normal" routine following a very busy holiday concert season!

With winter in full swing, that means we're headed toward band instrument season.  The 4th grades at both schools are currently enjoying the "Band Instrument Petting Zoo," where they get to learn to hold and make a sound out of the wind instruments offered for band instruction.  4TH GRADE PARENTS, PLEASE WATCH THE NEWSLETTER AND YOUR CHILD'S BACKPACK FOR TWO SPECIFIC AND IMPORTANT NOTICES REGARDING THE START OF THE BEGINNER BAND PROGRAM IN MARCH.  I'll do my best to get copies of those notices posted here on the blog, too, for your reference.  I'll plan to post that information in both the "Instrumental Lessons" and the "Instrument Rentals" tabs above.  PLEASE contact me with any questions you might have about our beginner band program.

NDS 6th Grade Parents:  After the new year, information was sent home about this year's fine arts field trip to Boston on Thursday, March 27.  Permission slips are due along with a deposit of at least $14 by Friday, February 7th.  The remaining $13 (for those who did not pay the $27 up front) will be due by Friday, March 14.

Stay warm - this winter's been a cold one!!  Brrrrrrrrrr!!!
