Newsletter – 25 July 2017 – Term 3 week 2

THE MUSIC PROGRAM NEEDS YOU – We have a number of vacancies coming up in the Music Program. We are after an Instrument Manager as well as a Percussion Contact Parent. I will be stepping down in a couple of years (unless someone wants to start next year) so if you’d like to join and start preparing for the role, please let me know.

K – 6 Guitar Lessons – If your child is interested in learning guitar, please get in touch with Sharon as we have a few spots become available now that we have two teachers. Unlike previously, anyone interested is welcome to join.

Composition Workshop – In preparation for this years Composition Competition, a Composition Workshop will be run in Week 5. The workshop is free and open to any students K – 6, interested in entering the Composition Competition. If you are interested, there will be a signup sheet on the band room door.

Information and Instrument Demonstration Evening – We’ll be having an information evening that will include an instrument demonstration in Week 6, ahead of the instrument tryout day in Week 8. This will be a great opportunity for all families, whether currently in the program or if you are looking at joining in the future, to come along and see what will be happening next year. There will be a number of changes happening so come along and be informed.

If you have any questions you’d like answered on the evening, please send your suggestions to Jenifer our secretary and we’ll make sure that it gets covered on the evening.
