Summer and private lessons

We always hope that the kids will practice over the summer but it would also benefit them to take private music lessons. Taking lessons will help them retain what was learned during the year but to also advance to the next level.

The following individuals offer private music instruction:

Emily Bachert - clarinet, snare, xylo, marimba - 1 or 785-840-7409

Patty Hamel - piano - or 785-979-2533

Beginning band members that wish to move up to intermediate band must pass an audition in August. The audition piece for that audition is Regal March, in the red band book.

I want to get the orchestra back up and running again. They took second semester off because the director decided to not return after the holidays. If you know of students that would like to be involved in orchestra, have them contact me for information.
