‘New’ Beginning Instrumental Registration

Due to the ‘hands-on’ nature of beginning instrumental lessons and the many current restrictions related to Covid-19, all NEW registration for band and orchestra is suspended indefinitely. As procedures and protocols change in our community and school, we look forward to offering the opportunity to join our instrumental program as soon as it is feasible. Stay tuned for updates - and thank you for your patience and understanding!

5th and 6th Grade Band and Orchestra (students with 1+ year of previous experience). 

Students continuing in instrumental music this year WILL have in-school instruction! Distancing and other restrictions/logistics issues mean that we cannot meet in large groups, have full activity period rehearsals, activities or performances BUT you will be meeting with Mrs. Clinton and Dr. Moyer in small groups. 

These lessons will focus on building individual skills and technique and may also include ‘chamber music’ opportunities to play duets, trios or similar literature with your classmates and teachers. DON’T WORRY if you are feeling a little ‘rusty’ or anxious about your achievement - we understand that the past several months have been very challenging and we are committed to helping you get back on track with lots of review and guidance. Stick with us! Our goal is to make sure that you stay involved with music and have the skills you need to enjoy all of the amazing benefits band and orchestra have to offer!

You will receive written notification and other details about your in-school lesson sometime within the first few cycles of school. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to navigate this new situation.

‘Remote Option’ Musicians

Our goal is to keep everyone involved and engaged in our music programs. Dr. Moyer and Mrs. Clinton will be available to work with you remotely as you get back into the swing of things with Band and Orchestra. We will be utilizing Schoology to provide materials and instruction (through recorded video feedback) for in-school AND remote learners.

As you get rolling with your online instruction, please take a moment to check out the Schoology page for Band/Orchestra (your directors will register you automatically) and start thinking about how you will incorporate music practice into your daily routine. DON’T WORRY if you are feeling rusty or behind in any way. Mrs. Clinton and Dr. Moyer are 100% committed to making sure you receive the level of instruction you need, whether it is review or enrichment - we are here for you!
