BAND PARENTS:

PLEASE remind and encourage your children to keep playing their instruments at home. Practice times have decreased dramatically, which negatively impacts all of the band members. Even small amounts of practice time can be so beneficial. Small steps lead to great success, but zero effort leads to weakness and frustration.

 A team- our band- is only as strong as its weakest link. Please help your child to be strong in his/her commitment to using the talents with which they’ve been blessed.
