Good Afternoon, Music Families!!

 

Our students continue to take care of business!! As a whole, I'm impressed with how well our students are advocating for themselves. That being said, I encourage our students to always do their best work and to check grades often. Q1 will be wrapping up before we know it!

 

Updates for ALL:

  1. $55 Music Participation Fee - If you haven't paid our Music Participation Fee yet, please do so as soon as you are able. Again, this is a change from what was communicated during the Summer. I'll be more than happy to address any questions that you may have. The fee can be paid on RevTrak HERE

  2. Private Lessons - This week, we are beginning our Private Lessons push! It's important to us that our Music Participation Fee remains the lowest in the area among high schools. As a result, we hope that this will encourage families to, instead, invest in private music lessons. In most cases, this investment will pay off in the long run. It's no secret that over 80-85% of students in All-State ensembles study privately. Believe it or not, scholarships in music are not difficult to find, no matter your major! I have attached to this email a list of local professionals that we highly recommend. 

  3. Music Merchandise Store - ALL music students are receiving a free UnderArmour performance t-shirt that should be arriving in the coming days. Beyond that, we hope that you'll consider purchasing LBHS music attire for your family and friends. This isn't a fundraiser, just a chance to promote our music programs! Please share this link: https://www.bsnteamsports.com/shop/UPP6pRrqdK The store closes on Nov. 2nd!

  4. Engraved Bricks - Our Arts Boosters (within the One Beckham Foundation) is heading up Engraved Brick sales. Click HERE to learn more.  

 

Band Updates:

  1. Morning Rehearsals/Dark Adventure Project - Our Dark Adventure recording session is ON for the evening of October, 27th!!! In preparation, it's necessary to have 2 combined, before-school rehearsals this Tuesday & Thursday morning from 7:30am - 8:15am in the auditorium. Virtual students are welcomed and encouraged to participate. Social distancing and COVID guidelines must be followed. Virtual students who wish not to participate should contact me directly for alternate assignments. We're looking forward to watching this collaborative project unfold!

 

Choral Updates:

  1. Video Submissions/Amazing Project - During class this week, we will begin recording our individual video submissions for our "Amazing" Project. Virtual students are encouraged to come in after-school during our "Open Practice" times to record. Specific instructions will be given in class. We're looking forward to the finished product!!

  2. All-State - Sophomores who are auditioning for All-State should be putting the final touches on their preparation with a goal to make recordings next week. Happy Practicing!!
