4TH GRADE BAND   

                                      

4th grade band lessons are posted on the calendar below.

 

 

 

 

  INFORMATION FOR BEGINNING BAND

 

*During the first several weeks, the students have individual or small group lessons only, (not the whole band) to get them started.  These weekly lessons last for about 15-20 minutes, and continue throughout the entire school year.


 

*Playing an instrument can be very enjoyable and rewarding, but it does require commitment.  

Each student is required to practice a minimum of 90 minutes per week.  This comes out to be about 15 minutes per day.  The student’s grade is determined entirely on the amount of practice time they record.  There is a practice record sheet inside their book.

 

*Lesson times will be posted in the 4th grade classrooms.  Other band information and lesson times will be posted on the Mary of Lourdes website: <molschool.org> click on “Elementary School,” then “Elementary Faculty,” then “Mr. Anderson’s page.”

*Please help them succeed by encouraging regular, scheduled practice, and after November 1st remind them to bring their instrument and music every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

 

*All band members must pay MOL a $50 per year fee to help us cover cost of school owned instruments, music, stands, repairs, etc.  You may pay this in 2 payments of $25 if desired.

 

A representative from Eckroth Music of St. Cloud will be here to make instruments available for you to rent or purchase.

This opportunity offers a very reasonable several month trial package for beginners, which I highly recommend.  During and after the trial period, when students are sure which instrument they will continue, is a great time to shop around for alternate instrument purchase deals.  

For instrument pricing, go to http://www.eckroth.com/aeRntSchoolSelect.aspx   You will need to fill in our school information, under “Little Falls Schools”. In addition to that, I have a list of MOL parents and others who have used instruments for sale on my web page, which I keep updating with each request.  <molschool.org>

You may acquire an instrument elsewhere, but be wary of inexpensive, unfamiliar brand names.  It’s a good idea to check with Mr. Anderson before you buy.  

 

Remember;

There will be a meeting for parents and students on Monday, September 18 in the Mary of Lourdes Elementary cafeteria at 7pm.
