December Updates

Today in class, your child received a practice log that is due next Tuesday, December 13th. They should mostly be working on their music for their upcoming concert. Individual practice is critical to the success of the group, so encouragement of good practice habits is key. :) Please initial the practice log every time your child practices. (They will receive a 100 if they practice at least 4 days, 85 for 3 days, 75 for 2 days, 70 for one day or less) If your child plays cello or bass, does not have their own instrument at home, and does not have a ride/access to school instruments before school, please let me know so we can come up with an alternate assignment or way for them to practice.

I also wanted to go ahead and send out concert reminders.
