We look forward to seeing all of our returning music panthers and meeting our new panthers as well. Please DO NOT bring instruments for the first day or two, espeically 6th graders. We will be demonstrating and talking with you about your options before we want you to have an instrument. We will let you know when it will be time to bring it in and give you a few days to look for rentals too.
We want you to be able to help your child with their music learning and to secure information or supplies. PLEASE CLICK HERE to be directed to a parent/guardian helping page.
If you are interested in auditioning for Wind Ensemble or String Ensemeble, whether you have been pre-placed in the group or not. The audition requirements will be given out during the first day of school for those interested. We highly recommend that you start by practicing your scales. The auditions will be done via video on Google Classroom. For those of you auditioning, you will sign-up for the Ensemble level Google Classroom. You can always switch G.C. later if you end up in the Advanced class.

Regular cleaning and maintenance is essential to keeping your instrument in proper working order. It is recommended to have your instrument inspected and serviced by a repair technician during a break in school so you do not miss any rehearsal time. The inspection may not result in any work being needed. However, just like an automobile it is recommended that a repair technician perform a tune-up as necessary to keep your instrument in proper working order.
All instruments should be cleaned on a routine basis - about once a month. See these videos for help.
