    Welcome to BAND! Here I am!
     
     
    Our focus for the next couple of weeks is making the best sound possible, sitting up straight, reading the music notation, and not "waking up the baby!" Try to play as beautifully as you can! Check out the assignments for your instrument, and others, if you want!
      
     
    (Additional content access is to the left. PLEASE FIND ASSIGMENTS NOW THAT BAND CLASS IS TEMPORARILY CANCELED.)
